Introducing CityLab Latino

Apr 07, 2016


BEST PRACTICES SERIES

The Atlantic's CityLab has introduced  CityLab Latino, a Spanish-language version of the English-language CityLab you've already come to know. It's also the result of a new partnership with Univision Digital. You can find the site, which is also accessible at Univision.com, at citylablatino.com.

The site launched with a mix of translated versions of some of the best CityLab.com stories from the recent past as well as original pieces, including a close-up look at how activists in Brownsville, Texas, are fighting obesity with bikes, and a report on the real causes of pollution in Mexico City.

CityLab Latino was founded with a single aim, according to CityLab: "to broaden our coverage of the most important ideas and pressing issues facing today's cities and neighborhoods, with an emphasis on the Spanish-speaking world." The new publication will focus on topics such as affordable housing and transportation, crime, immigration, rising sea levels, architecture, and urban design in the global cities where Spanish is spoken. But CityLab Latino will also cover cities and topics from the U.S. and all over the world, just like CityLab.com does.
