On the second day of the workshop, Dr. Schwell gave a hybrid lecture – at the Institute for project associates and opened to the public through a virtual platform. In the lecture, titled „Mobilizing Urgency, Mobilizing Futures“, she presented the concept of urgency through a few examples (urgency induced by the climate change and migrant flows) and problematized its non-democratic potential. The discussion that followed revolved around the applicability of the urgency concept in the researches carried out within the project, especially having in mind the post-earthquake condition in Zagreb and Petrinja, as well as pandemic context and the need to organize public and everyday life in all of the researched cities.
