Hi and welcome to my last blog! Congrats you made it!
It sounds surreal that our journey through the streets of Chicago finally comes to an end.

The metaphor of urban metabolism has allowed me to look for links and connections that may not be noticable straightaway between the social, political, environmental etc. issues.

However, we have also seen cases were the governments and communities were able to fix problems in many of the situations when the metabolic link was broken in the city.
