To build the cities we want and need, cities must change course and place equity and sustainability at the core of every decision and action. Equal access to clean air should be part of this transition.

Join UrbanShift and World Resources Institute for a webinar on December 12, 2023 to learn about how Latin American cities are working toward clean air for all and the challenges and opportunities they have faced in this effort.

In this interactive webinar, we will review the status of access to clean air for all in Latin American cities. Cities including Bogota, Guadalajara, and Mexico City will share their success stories of developing and using data analytics to inform, design and evaluate impact of efforts to achieve clean air for all—and share this work with the public. They will also share how they dealt with challenges around incorporating the right to breathe as part of integrated planning efforts. During the webinar, we will invite participants to exchange their own experiences and ideas to accelerate progress on delivering clean air for all.
