About the Challenge

The Global Platform for the Right to the City and TECHO are organizing this artistic challenge with the goal to identify, document, disseminate and exchange initiatives related to climate change within the framework of the right to the city for young people. This is an opportunity for young people to propose new ways of seeing, understanding and relating to issues that influence their present and future. It is hoped that the process and the final result will help, on the one hand, to question the current model that increases inequalities and, on the other, to point to new emancipatory utopias and social pacts for a better future. In addition, through the eyes of youth, this initiative seeks to reflect the advances or setbacks in the implementation of the global agendas – New Urban Agenda, the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change – by cities in Latin America and the Caribbean.

The challenge is open to anyone between the ages of 16 and 30 and participation may be individual or collective, establishing for the latter a formal representation, under the identity of one of the group participants.
