Cities for Change
Change the world, start with the city!
Feminist City and Economy - a Grassroots New Deal with Lilith Magazine
“You have to act as if it were possible to transform the world, and you have to do it all the time” - Angela Davis. The climate crisis, discrimination and sexism, housing shortage and poverty. We now know what we encounter in this unequal and unjust world. But do we also know what the opposite, a just world, actually looks like?
Lilith investigates together with other grassroots organizations and activists. What does it mean to have a feminist city and economy? And what would our neighborhoods, roads, communities and lives look like if we could make our wildest dreams come true?
We go into conversations with those who are already working tirelessly to bring about this new world. The results will become a code for the future, as a promise to ourselves and future generations.

Code for the future: “Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing. ” - Arundhati Roy
Lilith is convinced that a radical system change is needed and that can only be done with input from neighborhoods and citizens who make the city what it is. That is why we are drawing up a code for the future. Should there be more green space in the city, more single-family homes, or should it be communal? Should there also be a pee curl for women and femmes? And should buses run a different route to offer carers and people with disabilities more access to public transport? We will discuss this and more soon.
Organised by Lilith, in collaboration with Oscam, cultural institute in Amsterdam Southeast.
