Jiménez explains that “usually the idea of ​​progress made urban centers models or points of arrival for small towns, but if the model of society we face leads us to think of other models of consumption and social organization such as decrease, are not the towns also a mirror in which the cities must look?

“It is about thinking about urgent issues of our social reality that concern us all, such as artificial intelligence, freedom, women in the rural world or how technology is transforming the human condition, in a language accessible to everyone” , he argues.
