In a city, people have different needs and uses of the environments they inhabit. The urban environment should be efficient and livable, and above all feel safe for everyone.A gender perspective is absolutely essential in the debate to imagine cities of the future, considering the different needs and uses for spaces which relate directly to a gender identity. In most of the cities, women and LGBTQA people are not safe or excluded from the urban planning. Taking gender into account in public policy is called gender mainstreaming. This panel will explore the need to build cities with gender and women in mind, from different perspectives, countries and cultures.
