Desafíos

We are Neighbors

How do we generate greater cooperation between neighbors to increase trust and security in difficult neighborhoods?

We are looking for proposals that look to encourage cooperative solutions among neighbors, looking to answer common issues that affect their day-to-day relations, in order to collaborate towards improving their perceptions of security in the neighborhood.


The Neighborhood lives on

How can we improve public infrastructure so that communities better identify themselves with their neighborhoods?

We want to find solutions focused on recognizing distinctive aspects of each neighborhood, in order to provide a common identity to the public infrastructure that the communities use on a daily basis in their neighborhoods.
