“The City is not the problem, its the solution…”

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!
