The issue of social inclusion remains imperative for the attainment of most development goals.Cities encounters diverse challenges and responsibilities; thus, successes and failures of social integration and inclusion can be mostly experienced at the city level and here where local authorities come to the front.The 4th Urban Social Forum, held in December 2016, explored new and alternative models for urban development that promotes social justice, equality, sustainability and citizen participation addressing cities' challenges from an integrated approach. Putting social inclusion at the heart of PVE strategies, some cities are going even further by working with all communities to build resilience, an approach that goes beyond social inclusion. However, cities cannot handle this challenge alone; an urgent need for cooperation at different local and national levels prevails. This demonstrates an urgent need for innovative solutions conductive to the values of social inclusion driven by youth, who are the most affected by these changes and the key actors of social transformations.
