As part of the “Ruta” project, debates and networking events take place in the Fabrica Ciudad (Urban Factory or Make the City), bringing together key stakeholders to discuss how joint efforts can help to create more liveable, inclusive, prosperous and sustainable cities. Events take from the end of August until the end of October, organized by Pakhuis de Zwijger, a Dutch cultural center which organises events on the urgent and complex urban issues of today. Several other events are around the “Ruta” are as a Dutch Market, music, outdoor cinema and street theater.

The project is a first example of the Human Cities Coalition’s commitment to meeting today’s urban challenges. The project is supported by and working closely with the municipality and local stakeholders, the Habitat III office in Quito and the Dutch embassies of Peru/Ecuador and Bolivia.
