In the complex and vibrant open-air laboratory of our urban spaces, where our contradictions are manifested and changes in habits and ways of life are experienced, the great challenges of humanity's development are also concentrated.

Faced with the triple ecological, economic and social challenge we face, Carlos Moreno proposes rethinking the city on the basis of use, proximity and the elimination of displacement. What he has called 'the fifteen-minute city' implies another way of living, of consuming, of working, of being in the city; it implies rethinking the way of moving around, of travelling through space, of exploring it, of discovering it. The multicentric city is here to recover the particular character and spirit of each city and to offer the opportunity to regain control of the time of our lives.

Carlos Moreno is the author of La revolución de la proximidad, scientific director and co-founder of the chair Entrepreneurship, Territory, Innovation at IAE Paris - Panthéon Sorbonne University, where he is an associate professor.

Moderated by Clara Blanchar, journalist specialising in urban planning, mobility, social movements and housing, with a special focus on the city of Barcelona.
