What do people dream of today? The philosopher Walter Benjamin used to say that a society assesses its living conditions in its dreams, meaning the dissatisfaction with its present life conditions and the desire to improve them. In these times of growth crisis, cultural and moral crisis, and now health crisis, do we still dream collectively? Can we imagine ourselves different as a society, or living somewhere else? We can wonder if the pandemic which affects us, has something to teach us and could guide our imagination towards the city of tomorrow : beyond sustainable city.
