Medellin: From violence to innovation

Do you remember when Medellin was the most violent city in the world? In 1991, Medellin registered almost 7000 homicides, deaths related to the fight between the two drug cartels, paramilitary groups and the Colombian State. Almost 30 years after this period of violence and terrorism, Medellin has been reducing the number of homicides by more than 95%, but how did the city achieve this? Join our tour Comuna 13 & Downtown: From violence to innovation to find out.
