The Designing Inclusion workshop was an effort to offer an alternative to the mega-project Guayaquil ecológico designed by the government without any participatory approach. During the 2 weeks of intensive work the 52 international researchers visited the soon affected neighborhoods to better understand the current situation.

The aim was to generate a co-production of ecological urbanism to enhance the existing social infrastructure and transform the city from within. By entangling the communities with the future of their spacial conditions, one could create a more inclusive city, stimulating a meaningful social and physical change.
