Colombian media report on Urban95 initiative in Bogotá

Published November 22, 2019

Colombian news outlet El Tiempo has published a feature (in Spanish) reporting on the Urban95 intervention in La Acacia, in the Ciudad Bolívar region of Bogotá. It explains how members of the community have engaged in improving local public space so the neighbourhood now resembles a “giant kindergarten” – very young children feel welcome and safe everywhere, and there are plenty of activities in which they can participate.

You can read more about the Foundation-supported work in the neighbourhood in our 2017 Annual Report, this news item on first Urban95 Crezco con mi barrio (“Growing with my neighbourhood”) exercise, and a blog by our partner Fundación Casa de la Infancia.
