Gabriella Gómez-Mont explains how the Laboratorio para la Ciudad from Mexico City aims to inject innovation and citizen participation in an experimental space addressing the challenges of a megalopolis, from different approaches, scales and disciplines. It facilitates the interaction between citizens and governments, making people realize citizenship is a creative act and governments are catalyzers.
