The team behind the initiative

As an international group of young urbanists, we saw our universities closed overnight and our cities go into lockdown. Confronted with these measures, we became intrigued by the new urban conditions that have emerged in the midst of the global outbreak of the Coronavirus.  

 

We decided to dedicate our period of self-quarantine to collect, and spread, stories of cities and citizens around the world. Instead of echoing the dystopian images of abandoned streets that dominate the media coverage, we wanted to provide a platform for citizens to share their experiences and reflections in their cities on lockdown. On March 16th 2020, we launched our website - followed soon after by our social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. 

Our team is made up of students and graduates of the 4CITIES Erasmus Mundus master's in Urban Studies.
