There is a deep need to focus on more inclusive ways of shaping cities since more than half of the world´s population now live in them. All sorts of difficulties are challenging the way we live and survive in the city, moreover for the urban poor who, as only choice, have to agglomerate in inadequate and even dangerous parts of the urban peripheries. Consequently, agglomeration makes difficult the provision of services. Thus, limiting the access to education, sanitation and other networks of opportunities and producing intolerance to differences. Deepening social and economic inequality.
A good city should be an inclusive city. One that provide spaces for social engagement and cohesion between its fragmented societies, throughout its entire territory. Inevitably, I think about a city that actually has been named everywhere, because of its recent approach to tackle poverty and inequality through an urbanism of inclusion.
