Dialogues on Public Space: Informal Work and Mobility

Mexico City, Mexico

"Dialogues on Public Space: Informal Work and Mobility" took place on June 13, 2018, in Mexico City. The objective of the event was to create a space for dialogue and discussion between informal workers who perform their activities in the public space and activists of groups of pedestrians and cyclists whose mobility agendas sometimes ignore the right to public space as a work space.
