Opportunities and Urban Poverty
- Canning House
On the evening of 11 December, Canning House hosted the fourth event in our Opportunities series – Opportunities and Urban Poverty.
Medellín has come a long way since it was ranked among the world’s most dangerous cities to live in during the 1980s and 90s. In order to continue improving productivity and reducing crime and violence, Mr Quintero stressed the importance of IT in curriculum at all levels of education, and the need for a digitally connected population. By increasing access to internet, Mr Quintero hopes that big data can be used to create more effective, targeted policies for Medellín’s most marginalised communities.
The Medellín mayoral elections will take place in October 2019.
