A journey through the history of municipalism
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. In this session we'll take an exciting tour through the history of municipalism alongside people who have studied it or lived through it first hand. We'll explore the examples of Spanish municipalism in the early 19th century, Italy’s Take Over the City movement of the 1970s, progressive cities in the US under Reagan and the Greater London Council that stood up to Thatcher in the 80s, and we'll identify the lessons that they hold for contemporary movements and governments.
