SUMMARY

After more than 20 years of violence linked to the drug cartel, Medellín is rising from the ashes thanks to a new policy that emphasizes #inclusion.#social social inclusion#urban planning and#education at the heart of the urban project. Once these "prerequisites" have been met, the final step is to encourage#entrepreneurship. Theoriginality of this approach also lies in the fact that it starts from disadvantaged outlying areas and links them to the #city center, rather than focusing on revitalizing the latter.
