Sustainability and social movements: interview with David Harvey

Interview with David Harvey performed by our colleagues Ecosistema Urbano about the concept of sustainability and social movements. Harvey is one of the greats of modern geography, a reference thinker and researcher, with a clear stance against inequality and injustice generated by capitalist system. In his own words:

The right to the city is far more than the individual liberty to access urban resources: it is a right to change ourselves by changing the city. It is, more­over, a common rather than an individual right since this transformation inevitably depends upon the exercise of a collec­tive power to reshape the proces­ses of urban­ization. The freedom to make and remake our cities and ourselves is, I want to argue, one of the most precious yet most neglected of our human rights.”

His message is:

“Think about it, get active, really start to work with social movements because that’s where the changes going to come from.”
