Cita: Enrique Peñalosa profile by Project for Public Space

5 Septiembre, 2013

As a fish needs to swim, a bird to fly…we need to walk, not in order to survive, but to be happy


An accomplished public official, economist and administrator, Enrique Peñalosa completed his three-year term as Mayor of Bogotá, Colombia on December 31, 2000. While mayor, Peñalosa was responsible for numerous radical improvements to the city and its citizens. He promoted a city model giving priority to children and public spaces and restricting private car use, building hundreds of kilometers of sidewalks, bicycle paths, pedestrian streets, greenways, and parks.
