Ciudad Contexto


A programme for discussion, experimentation and dissemination of innovative urban solutions.

Ciudad Contexto is the place where intellectual, social and experiential potential of all citizens can be connected to design creative, innovative and inclusive solutions for their environment.

Through a cyclic programme, activities are proposed in three interconnected formats:

– Ciudad Estudio. A place for debating, where specialists discuss urban issues and set the challenges to influence and transform urban policy.

– Ciudad Laboratorio. A place for action, where people interested in a specific subject experiment through collaborative practice to generate tangible solutions for the city.

– Ciudad Diálogo. A place for dissemination, where the knowledge generated is brought to the public in an open, pedagogical and accessible way.

In 2020, the first edition of Ciudad Contexto was developed, with a focus on collective housing as a promoter of urban transformation. Developed entirely online, the edition works in Housing Equity with different activities: talks, hackathons, workshops, collective research, etc.

Ciudad Contexto is a project which is open to upcoming editions in which to work on new topics related to urban innovation.
