CLACSO and the Global Platform for the Right to the City (GPR2C) organize a dialogue series to advance the collective learning process of the GPR2C Thematic Papers 2021 and present the workbook “The Right to the City in the face of challenges from today”
The four webinars of the series “The Right to the City in the face of today’s challenges” will be dedicated to deepening key issues of the Right to the City from different perspectives and connecting with other struggles: the development of quality public spaces that guarantee the Right to the City for everyone (September 8); the promotion of inclusive urban-rural linkages (September 15); cities without discrimination, with special emphasis on women’s rights from an intersectional perspective and the Right to the City (September 16); and inclusive citizenship, from the experience of young people and culture in the struggles for the Right to the City (September 22).
Since last year, the GPR2C has launched a series of Thematic Documents to deepen key conceptual and programmatic content related to the Right to the City. The writing of the papers is directed by experts, with the support of reference groups made up of professionals and activists from various associated networks. These webinars are part of the collective learning process and will serve to broaden the angle of each document, to provide ideas and experiences from other parts of the world and from other professionals and members of civil society.
Furthermore, this year CLACSO and the GPR2C have produced a new workbook entitled “The Right to the City in the face of today’s challenges” [AVAILABLE HERE IN SPANISH]. This workbook will be presented throughout the sessions of the forthcoming webinar series. The workbook brings together various political and social perspectives to advance the realization of the Right to the City in Latin America from the perspective of urban inequalities, through reflections that provide practical inputs to be used in awareness-raising, training, and advocacy initiatives by interested actors and organizations.
These webinar dialogues will take place on the 8, 15, 16, and 22 September (more information here).
