Durban University of Technology
The Urban Futures Centre at Durban University of Technology is based in the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment. The Urban Futures Centre is an interdisciplinary laboratory that not only builds theory, but also tests out ideas and interventions in ways that are not prescribed and determined by dominant stakeholders, be they government officials, academics or large social movements. The Urban Futures Centre seeks to find new solutions to problems, and to do so in collaboration with those most affected by the complexities that characterise urban spaces.
Clifford Shearing is an Honorary Professor in the Faculty of Engineering and the Built Environment at Durban University of Technology.
