Mexico City: Inclusive Actions Towards Sustainability
Speaker(s): Marcelo Ebrard
Chair: Professor George Philip
Recorded on 2 June 2010 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.
Centrally involved in the shaping of Mexico City since the early 80's, Marcelo Ebrard has lead ambitious and innovative campaigns to face the city's challenges, in relation to public security and environmental sustainability. The lecture will address his government's developmental priorities, making a case for social equality as being at the core of its initiatives to enhance mobility, improve public transport, and restore public space. Social inclusion, it will argue, is a necessary first step for a sustainable future of one Latin America's largest megacities.
