Cities Magazine #3 front page © Magazyn Miasta / Res Publica

In the first issue of the Magazyn Miasta: Cities Magazine, we presented the history and locally created rites of sharing in the post-Soviet cities of Central Europe. In the second the present manifestations in the region and its mechanisms. In the current issue, we look to the future: How and what will we share in the cities of Central Europe?

In this Magazine we are presenting some heroes of the modern way of life in cities of Central Europe and their practices. We describe how they invent new forms of sharing housing, create a common solar energy sources, and promote a healthier mobility culture. We explain how they experiment with urban democracy, because the right to the city is a fundamental value for all citizens. And their work brings effects! Meet these heroes with us – it’s worth it, because their actions shape and will continue shaping the new urban reality of Central Europe!

Join our discussion and the launch of the third international issue of the acclaimed Magazyn Miasta/ Cities Magazine. During the launch, copies of the magazine will be available for free.

The launch is part of reSITE 2019 REGENERATE.
