FGV coordinates Journey of Internationalization of Argentine Cities in Buenos Aires
On October 16, Buenos Aires hosted the first edition of the Training Journey on Internationalization of Cities, which is part of the training and lecture series developed by FGV’s International Affairs Division (DINT). The event aimed to share knowledge and train civil servants and public officials from small, medium and large Argentine cities to coordinate internationalization activities as a tool for overcoming challenges to local development.
The activity was supported by the Government of the City of Buenos Aires and was held at the main office of the Argentine Council for International Relations (CARI), one of the leading think tanks in the country. Representatives from 15 Argentine cities participated in the journey, in addition to the national public officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and researchers linked to CARI.
The journey was led by FGV professors Istvan Kasznar and Rodrigo Tavares, who conducted lectures and coordinated group dynamics on tools for para-diplomatic international cooperation and issues related to the implementation of the New Urban Agenda, from the identification processes of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
FGV’s Deputy International Director, professor Marlos Lima, opened the event alongside CARI’s Executive Director, José María Lladós, and highlighted the importance of the partnership and the relevance of initiatives like the Journey for strengthening the participation of cities as relevant actors in the international scenario.
The Journey of Internationalization of Cities, held in Argentina, was the first of a series of events expected to also take place in other Latin American countries, encouraging cities in the region to leverage their external actions for facing their local challenges.
