So you’re interested in what you can read to become a better designer, architect, urban planner, urbanist, or neighbour living and working in a super-divers city? Here are a few recommendations from our Designing Cities For All (DCFA) team, and we will add new recommendations periodically. For all you city designers that want to empower yourself (and others), let these reads guide your practice of transforming cities for the better.

De Inclusiemarathon (Dutch)

How do you turn awareness about diversity and inclusion into action? How do you avoid sticking with hollow words and diversity statements? Authors Kauthar Bouchallikht and Zoë Papaikonomou interviewed 41 diversity professionals and researchers about their knowledge and experiences in the field of diversity and inclusion. They talk about the hurdles they encounter and about their approach. It makes De Inclusiemarathon a revealing book about the persistent lack of diversity and equality within many organisations, but it also gives a constructive, concrete story about how organisations can become more diverse, more equal, and more inclusive.

VALUE magazine 

How can we as humans be of value on this planet? After years of living in an economic system that strives for infinite growth, it is time for change. We’re in need of a system in which there is time and space for equality, diversity, and sustainability. What does the transition to such a new system look like and what role can we as humans play in it? In VALUE Magazine, millennials Amber Bloos, Melodie Michel, and Girma Segaar invite you on their quest. VALUE is a one-off publication of Stichting Nieuwe Helden where the most important quest of our time is being researched: exploring new economic systems. Economic systems which go beyond extractive capitalism. Think about conscious technology, the well-being economy, and slow fashion. But they also dig into their own personal values. Want to know more about how to design a more equal and sustainable economic system? Order below!
