Jean-Luc Krieg, founder and executive director of Urban Mosaic, an organization working for transformational change in urban poor communities in Mexico and Colombia, focuses on the importance to work for sustainable change in cities, in order to address the challenge of rapid urbanization and increasing violence that affect us all. His stories and principles for engagement show that while it would be easy to lose hope or settle for simplistic but counterproductive solutions in the long-term, real, measurable and sustainable change that impacts the lives of tens of thousands of people is possible, even in the most uncertain and complex of circumstances.
