Urbanauth is an independent, European media project that promotes urban culture and offers educational content about the city-human relationship on its website(s). This includes topics such as urbanism and urban development, as well as urban culture and issues about the political city.
Urbs [lat.] City – Naut [gr.] Traveler
We are Urbanauth:
Travelers of the urban – on a journey through urbanism and cities worldwide.
Urbanauth is your urban media !
Through a long-term thematic approach, an archive of articles on urban issues is built and urban space as an entity is studied over a longer period of time, serving an educational gap. Thanks to its low-threshold nature, Urbanauth enables citizens to participate and present their views on the urban. Volunteer authors are guided in their research and each article is proofread and discussed in community meetings. Subsequently, the content will be translated and published in multiple languages and adapted to cultural and linguistic dimensions. The language of communication is English, while the support for the authors is provided in German, English and French. We value and adhere to the German Press Code.
The intercultural dialogue is intended to promote understanding of human and urban diversity. As a media project, Urbanauth values the German Press Code and takes a firm stand against discrimination, group-related hostility towards people (racism, sexism, fascism) and advocates a democratic culture. Qualitative, editorial features are the foundation of the educational project.
Responsible for editing, translations and the website in general is Vincent Göhlich. You can find the French version of Urbanauth here, as well our German website here.
Understanding the relationship of humans to their urban environment
Join Urbanauth as a guest author!
Urbanauth is aimed at a broad audience and, in particular, through its free, multilingual accessibility, also at educationally or hitherto culturally distant groups.
In order to promote a sustainable urban culture that creates social cohesion through equality and mindfulness and thus does justice to an open and diverse society, participatory and discursive formats (e.g. articles, lectures, discussion rounds, guided tours, concerts and workshops) play a significant role in the venture. In addition to the goal of increasing the medium’s reach, participation growth is also important to our long-term goal.
On the long term, Urbanauth’s goal is to establish itself as a European media project and to achieve a small contribution to improving the world of tomorrow with education about urban issues.
