Event description

Description

We live in a world of cities, our Planet is increasingly urban. Cities can be the main actors to face the challenges of climate change and fight against inequality and poverty.

The level of interdependence between cities is increasing, thanks to the growth of physical and digital connectivity. The size of cities is also changing, to the point where traditional administrative delimitations are becoming increasingly irrelevant when seeking answers to the big goals of development, balance and environmental sustainability.

If in the past we lived stages in which the world was organized by empires and then by nation-states, in the future we will live increasingly in a world of cities, in a world of SuperCities.

The master class by Alfonso Vegara will address the challenges and opportunities that cities pose, as new engines of global economy.


Alfonso Vegara has a PhD in City and Regional Planning and degrees in Architecture, Economics, and Sociology. He was President of ISOCARP, the International Society of City and Regional Planners, which has members in over 70 countries. He is a Fellow and Trustee of the Eisenhower Fellowships, and since 2005, he is Honorary Consul General of Singapore in Madrid.

Alfonso Vegara is the Founder and Honorary President of Fundación Metrópoli, an international center of excellence dedicated to research, design, and innovation in cities around the world. Fundación Metrópoli has an alliance with Microsoft in order to work in different cities of the world at the intersection between Territory and Technology. In 2016 he ended the direction of the project “Caribe & Santanderes Diamond in Colombia” which has been awarded by the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona as the “Innovative Idea Award of 2015”.
