Privileging the active role of the listener in the construction of knowledge, Radio 22 documents a series of discussions carried out in different places (Morocco, Medellín and now in Dubai) through live engagement with these specific social, geographic and political environments. Juan A. Gaitán and Mariana Cánepa Luna of Latitudes arrive at the final destination: The Pavilion Downtown, in the background Burj Khalifa, (so far) the tallest building in the world.
