We hold dialogues with Global South practitioners on decolonial urbanism.  Our first was a Brazilian Portuguese session called "Decolonial Perspectives" held within The Nature Of Cities Festival.  The session was facilitated by POSSIBLE FUTURES Co-Explorer Anna De Nardin, and featured a Brazilian panel consisting of social justice activist and politician Tainá de Paula, innovative designer in social urbanism Fábio Moraes, and Lisbon-based urbanist and public space specialist Laura Sobral.
