The main objective is to establish a dialogue on operational approaches for the building of sustainable cities in Latin America. It seeks to transcend the rhetoric of sustainable urban development to address four central themes of an operational agenda.

Each thematic axis will have 15 minutes of dialogue to leave time at the end for the conclusions most relevant to the design of operational approaches for the construction of sustainable cities in Latin America in the 21st century.
