The creation of the Green Economy Center is an ambitious project by the City of Buenos Aires to advance toward a sustainable economy within a framework of public-private collaboration that fosters the generation and formation of green jobs.
This initiative also involves an agreement with Sao Paulo and Mexico City to collaborate and transfer this experience, which means its projection can be expanded across the region.
Thanks to the project’s hands-on approach, with a number of outcomes expected in around two years after it starts, the experience can become a reference point for other similar cities in the region and can be promoted internationally by Metropolis and the collaborating institutions.
