Abstract

The urban needs to be understood with the mobilities that support and develop modern lives. The flow in cities is more than individual choices, technological transformations, or economic forces because practices and networks are culturally assembled when producing and performing city space. Contemporary planning paradigms are still “technocentric”, focusing on an efficient organization of societies. Storytelling in planning and politics offers a different perspective and opens up the opportunity to ask the question on why, what and for whom. It can put emphasis on what matters to people, on everyday life, its hopes, dreams and expectation, and its interconnectedness with urban mobilities.
