Metabolism of Cities Stakeholder Initiative

In October 2016 the Metabolism of Cities website launched the Stakeholders Initiative. This is an effort to create an international network of people that work or have a stake in the field of urban metabolism.

Over the past months we have spread the word about this initiative and we have set up a mailing list with people that are interested to join. We now start to organize specific projects around topics that are of interest. These project will have a duration of 3 months, and they can involve a variety of activities including:

The specific activities that we engage in will vary by topic and it will likely evolve over time. The first topic of choice was Data Visualizations and this project ran from October-December 2016.

In parallel, we are co-organizing masterclasses in urban metabolism. This is a short set of courses taking place in Brussels in December 2016 and January 2017. Click here to learn more about the Masterclasses.

Our current Stakeholders Initiative is around the creation of a Global Urban Metabolism Dataset. This project continued in January 2017 and is ongoing. In January 2018 we started our Urban Metabolism Interview Series

This Stakeholders Initiative is a new and recent initiative, and open to your input and ideas. So if you have any ideas as to how we can move forward, please don't hesitate to contact us!
