Transformative city-making — radical change for an ecologically just future

It is the year 2055. Seven years earlier, the world reached its net zero emissions goals — two years ahead of schedule. It was achieved after a wave of democratic reforms that saw voices from the margins being pushed front and centre. Innovations in digital deliberative democracy processes galvanised a coalition of disparate social movement. If governments wanted to stay in power, they had to address the crises. Corporations were dragged kicking and screaming. Billions in advertising failed to quell the thunderous call for radical action. People did not simply ask politely, but demanded action as if their life depended upon it. Because for many, it did.

The aim of the project

Students will be able to identify many of the ecological justice issues of Tallinn, understand why they persist and how these issues are being addressed in other cities. As an interdisciplinary course, students will employ a range of problem-solving approaches (such as systems thinking). This course offers an excellent opportunity for collaboration, with embedded flexibility that allows students from very different educational backgrounds to engage in an issue that is of great concern to younger generations.
