The conversation with Monica Villegas was extremely interesting.

We share a passion for cities, that most successful artifact in history. We are used to dealing with both indicators and sensations - maybe because, as an Argentine, I have grown accustomed to partisan public statistics (or "alternative data", as they now say).

In any case, I warmly recommend this interview with an intelligent and sensitive woman who knows that, sometimes, technique can leave us out of breath. Above all, she knows that it is precisely in the humanity of cities where we can find the air that can set us free.

Below, the full interview:

 

Politics Recovered is a series of interviews to 11 leading members of the Network of Political Innovation in Latin America. Taking advantage of the fact that they were meeting in Buenos Aires, Agustín Frizzera asked them what their vision of the new ways of doing politics is, and how do they approach the building of citizens’ rights and the inclusive use of technology.
