LASCN Pre-workshop

LASCN Pre-workshop 150 150 WeGO

In 2021, WeGO will take the initiative to establish the Latin America Smart Cities Network (LASCN), an open-ended regional network of city and other local governments across Latin America that will serve as a platform to exchange knowledge and foster cooperation on smart city development in the region.

This Pre-workshop will serve as a cornerstone in the establishment of this network, introducing this regional network initiative to the interested cities, and partners. It will also be an opportunity to identify the regional challenges and needs in smart city development.

Join us to learn more about WeGO’s new initiative and to take part in the discussion on the shaping of the network’s activities.
