Human activity in the Juan Díaz River Basin has historically been environmentally aggressive. The river and its ecosystem have been undervalued despite being a natural element of the first order.
The long-term vision of the resilient basin of the Juan Díaz River contemplates the river as a natural space and linear and floodable river park that communicates and promotes social and territorial inclusion.
The river ceases to be a physical barrier and becomes a linear element that brings the population closer to Line 2 of the Metro, avoiding long and costly journeys in private vehicles and reducing CO2 emissions.
