Mayor Enrique Peñalosa on designing better, more equitable cities
Urban experts have argued that cities are our greatest invention. Cities provide unparalleled job opportunities, make us smarter, healthier, and more connected. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has exposed long-standing inequalities that exist within their design.

While serving two terms as the Mayor of Bogotá, Colombia’s capital and largest city, Enrique Peñalosa transformed the city into an international model for progress and improvements in quality of life, mobility, equity, and sustainability. Join our conversation with Mayor Peñalosa as we discuss how the future of cities can be democratic and equitable for everyone, from transportation to housing, and everything in between.

This event is in partnership with our friends at the NYCEDC.

Speakers

Enrique Peñalosa
Former Mayor of Bogota, Colombia
Enrique Penalosa is an innovative thinker and doer in the urban field, whose vision and work have profoundly improved his city of Bogota of which he was Mayor in two separate terms and significantly influenced policies throughout the world. His advisory work concentrates on improving mobility, equity, public space and quality of life and creating cities more propitious for happiness; and the organizational and leadership requirements to find new ideas and turn them into realities which improve people´s lives. As Mayor of Bogota, the 8 million inhabitants’ capital of Colombia, in two non-consecutive periods (immediate reelection is not permitted), Penalosa profoundly transformed the city, turning it from one with neither bearings, nor self-esteem or hope into an international model for improvements in quality of life, mobility, equity and sustainability.
