Building Futures with Cities

Mar Santamaria, urban planners and co-founder of the think-tank 300.000 Km/s participates at the culturtalks of ETSALS.

300.000 Km/s bring together experience in strategic and integrated urban planning, participatory processes and data analytics for public policies, with a common goal of responding to the need for a green transition, fuelled by digitisation and leaving no one behind.

They have solid experience advising a variety of urban agents, including public administrations, scientific institutions, non-profit organizations and citizens’ groups.

Their pioneering work in the field of urbanism has been recognized for its innovative quality and its impact on social transformation by the European Commission (S+T+ARTS Prize 2019), the Premio de Urbanismo Español 2019 and the Premi Catalunya d’Urbanisme 2020, among others. Our work has been exhibited at international cultural institutions, including the Festival Ars Electronica (2021 and 2019), BOZAR Bruxelles (2020), the Chicago Arts Institute (2015) or the Centre for Contemporary Culture in Barcelona. They have also created specific contents for the Venice Architecture Biennale in the Catalan (Air/Aire/Aria 2021) and Ukrainian Pavilions.
