It includes lectures, interactive seminars, field visits, panels, spaces for collaborative and corporeal thinking and theorization, and, above all, efforts to create a community of urban scholars who proceed with an ethics of care and generosity.

Partners for the 2024 workshop include Ardhi University and the Just City Platform (FES-Tanzania). The program includes contributions from, among others, Gautam Bhan, Stefan Ouma, Wangui Kimari, Adam Bledsoe, Huda Tayob, Tatu Limbumba, and Youssuf Al Bulushi.
