A City for All: How to make global cities more inclusive?
1. The main challenges of our era, such as climate change and gender equality, can be connected through cities and urban planning.
2. Cities are places of privileges and opportunities, but those are unevenly distributed.
3. Public spaces reflect inequalities because they were built for men, thus fitting their needs and aspirations, while not taking into account women’s safety.
4. Women already are key actors in city planning, but mostly on an informal level. There is an issue on achieving more formal leadership.
5. We need to move from traditional urban planning to a more inclusive approach, taking into account marginalized groups and community-based data.
