COVID-19 has hit cities particularly hard, exposing key challenges faced by them. Through a discussion with civil society organizations, academics and local governments we aim to identify paths provided by the Right to the City for implementing SDG11 and the NUA beyond COVID-19.

The event will focus on concrete initiatives, under a balanced regional perspective, that have emerged from both governments and civil society to address these issues under the context of the COVID-19 pandemic but building pathways for long-term transformation. The presentation will be divided in three thematic blocks:

  • a) Gender equality and diversity
  • b) Social protection and informal economy
  • c) Right to the City and fight for racial justice
  • The event will also be live-streamed through our communication channels and will count with Spanish translation
