UN HABITAT invited the AESOP thematic group Public Spaces and Urban Cultures to organize a networking event at The World Urban Forum 7 in April 2014, Medellin, Colombia. To foster dialogue between global tendencies and local needs, this networking session will be organized as open as possible to the local public, inviting children and elderly people, the users of Medellin’s public spaces, to participate. To facilitate this, a cooperation with colleagues at Medellins’ University of Antioquia or other Colombian universities will be initiated. This cooperation is to be arranged along transdisciplinary principles, understanding the Colombian university as agent of local change and participatory inclusion. 

Event Date: 9th April 2014 between 4:30 and 6:30 pm (Yellow Pavillon, Room 12).
