A Convenient Truth: Urban Solutions from Curitiba, Brazil

Cities should be a solution not a problem for human beings. The city of Curitibahas demonstrated for the past 40 years how to transform problems 

The story from Curtiba which has done wonders in areas such as public transport , waste management and open space provision, unlike some of the horror story cities of Brazil, includes active and imaginative leadership from the city’s Mayor.  At our launch however, although invited, no representative from the Tessaban attended.
