The objectives of this special session are:
1. To share the urban transformation that has taken place in the city over the past decades and the projects that will mark its future. All these efforts are focused on turning Medellín into a city for life on the basis of equity, inclusion, education, culture and citizen cohabitation. Medellín will be presented as an integral model of resilience.
2. Construct, alongside the international community, the elements of a new way of urban thinking and the tools needed to create life and equity in cities, in harmony with the upcoming sustainable development goals, Habitat III and the new World Urban Agenda.
3. Discuss the most pressing and fundamental challenges faced by cities today, while highlighting solidarity and international cooperation in short and long-term visions.
