Free talk on city mobility

Release time:2017-08-24    To share:  

In the 1980s, the first wave of young workers, intellectuals, merchants and investors arrived in Shenzhen. Their efforts, guided by the experimental policies of the government, drastically transformed the city, as well as their own living conditions.

If Shenzhen’s success was contingent upon the mobility of its citizens, both socially and spatially, which in turn created diverse opportunities and stimulated innovations in all fields, how does Shenzhen retain its mobility today? How does the allocation of public space, public transportation or car ownership contribute to or restrict the mobility of Shenzhen citizens?

Join Shenzhen-based U.S. anthropologist Mary Ann O’Donnell, who co-wrote “Learning From Shenzhen,” in a discussion on the conditions and future of migrant workers in Shenzhen. No sign-up is necessary.
