Sergio Fajardo, the former mayor of Medellin, Colombia presents the remarkable transformation he achieved by investing heavily in schools, libraries and public spaces in his city's poorest neighborhoods. Illustrating his talk with before and after images, Fajardo attributes his success to transparency, lack of corruption, and efficient construction. "We got it done," he says, "without stealing a single peso!" Fajardo was part of Political Equator III, a two-day conversation on border neighborhoods as sites of production organized by Teddy Cruz of UC San Diego. (#21967)
