Where and When

Guadalajara, Mexico. 7 to 29 July 2017.

Educational Content Area

Diversity. Sustainable Development.

Project Description

Participants in this IPP will help rehabilitate a public space.  Through engaging in community meetings and taking active roles in workshops, participants will listen to the wishes and needs of the local community.  Then, working alongside community members in a diverse range of activities, they will contribute to the construction of this reimagined and reinvented “human space”.

The partner organization, Colectivo 1.618, is an interdisciplinary group who manage, develop and provide platforms for integrated urban design projects. They support social transformation by bridging the gap between civil society and design.

Whilst learning about the importance of the conservation and appropriation of public spaces, participants will also have the opportunity to better understand the diversity and culture of Mexico, through engaging with local communities in a meaningful way.
