This fourth edition of NOW explores three dimensions of the new urban condition: the conquest of the radio-electric space, the recovery of the public space and the city as an ecological challenge. Imminent changes in the way digital society is managed, resistance to the depoliticised city and the challenge of sustainable urban development are three interconnected processes that require greater knowledge, creativity and commitment from more and more citizens.
