“The City is not the problem, its the solution…”Posted: 2010/11/08
To get over my sadness about not being able to attend the TEDx MidAtlantic conference in DC this past Friday, I decided to look at some TED Talks on sustainability and pretend I attended as hard as I could! While checking out a few of the talks, I came across this presentation given by Jaime Lerner, former mayor of Curitiba, Brazil. For those not in the know, Curitiba has become a world model for sustainability with a focus on transportation (specifically Bus Rapid Transit). Take a look at talk, it ends in the Lerner singing and the audience providing the music!
