This international Planning Studio aims to debate on the implementation of current planning projects in Medellin, Colombia, specifically examining the Green Metropolitan Belt proposal. It proposes to build up models for alternative intervention in the urban fringe involving community actors as crucial planning partners. Main partners are National University of Colombia-Medellin, Columbia University, International University of Catalunya and the Planning and Management Council of Commune 8 (CPG).
international student groups rounded up the proposals in each of the five
strategic themes prioritized by community leaders. The proposals suggested
diverse strategies to address the challenges and assets of the local community
in comuna 8 in order to produce an alternative model of intervention of the
green belt project. The results of the workshop become the inputs for the UC
and UNAL students to refine and further develop specific projects and their
management strategies. STUDENTS PRESENTATIONS:
