IUC-LAC launches a series of webinars to rethink European and Latin American cities in the post-pandemic scenario

Over 150 people participated in the first IUC-LAC Open Dialogues webinar session, last May 13th. Titled Rethinking the post-COVID-19 tourist city, the meeting brought together representatives of the private tourism sector in Spain and Italy and the Spanish cities of Malaga and Madrid and the Italian cities of Rome and Genoa, to expose experiences that can contribute to the Colombian city of Cartagena de Indias to conduct its own process of reopening tourism.

Animated by dynamic discussions about the current reality of tourism, the session had a maximum number of 155 participants, among professionals from United Nations agencies, representatives of the hotel and tourism sector, employees of federal and local governments, among others.

IUC-LAC City-to-City Cooperation Coordinator, Sandra Marín, moderator of the webinar, highlighted the importance of this exchange of experiences. “Although the tourism sector is one of the most affected by the effects of the pandemic, cities show a great capacity to advance public-private initiatives, adapt public space, or rely on new technologies. Certainly the topics covered can be very inspiring for other cities ”, he evaluated.
