Résumé

We are living in a period marked by intense urbanization —more people live in cities that are getting larger and taking up more territory. Urbanization also means that urban ways of life, specifically urban ways of relating to time, space and affect are dominant (1,2). Risk-taking and fear among youths who practice extreme sports, “risky” activism, drug consumption and delinquency, are becoming more prevalent in urban settings. Although these forms of risk-taking are different from the decision to follow or not follow public health guidelines, we can nevertheless use them to understand how, in an urban world, our relationship to time and affect is profoundly changing from what we knew previously.
