The aim of this TC is to establish a knowledge sharing network that will allow policymakers and practitioners from subnational governments of LAC and Europe to connect and innovate when addressing shared challenges. One topic has been prioritized based on the common issues in the urban agendas: "making cities more inclusive." Specifically, this operation will: (i) identify topics or thematic issues around which to center knowledge sharing; (ii) co design solutions taking into account city contexts, institutional capacities and innovative practices, and; (iii) collaborate with existing platforms and knowledge hubs in Europe and LAC to expand the Urbelac network and its knowledge sharing capacity.
This URBELAC's edition will foster cross-city collaboration to develop and share innovative solutions on how to promote inclusiveness in the post COVID scenario. The areas of action will include, at least: communication and mapping tools for all citizens, uses of public spaces to increase integration, changes in public governance, planning and programs for inclusiveness, and city led economic measures to put the city, and all of its dwellers, back on track after the economic collapse.
