Ministry of Space (Ministarstvo Prostora) is a collective from Belgrade, Serbia founded in 2011 with the aim of reflecting on the future of cities. They act in the field of urban and cultural policies, sustainable city development, fair use of common resources, and the involvement of citizens in the urban development of their environment.

Show Notes

Co-founders Iva Čukić and Marko Aksentijević share how to shift ownership of the commons into the hands of citizens, tips on fostering citizen engagement, resistance they’ve received from the government, some of their DIY projects, and they offer advice on how we can revitalize cities to be people-centered post-pandemic.
