Guatemalans Don’t Walk On The Streets, Final Part

A few days ago we talked about how seems difficult to walk down the street in Guatemala City. The talk of the urbanist Gonzalo Melián Marrero was given last year in Francisco Marroquín University describing the social dynamics that we make nowadays.

The malls, poorly maintained parks, entire areas of housing closed because of the insecurity. There’s not to many creative and exciting environments.

Recently came to me, thanks to the recommendation of a friend, the video “Vivir en Común en Guatemala” and it’s about these issues.  Both videos in Spanish.

There are some solutions on the table, private sector, public administrations working to restore parks and avenues, a decent public transport for all… and so on.
