The Future of Cities – How will you live in this century

The cities have become the preferred habitat of the people. By the end of this century almost 90% of the Earth's population will be living in urban centres. Brazil also passes through a phase of great concentration in cities. Currently the Country has nearly 20 cities with more than 1 million people. São Paulo with a metropolitan region of 20 million and Rio de Janeiro with about 11 million.

What will life be like in these cities? To seek answers, Instituto Envolverde is performing the Project Envolverde Invites – The Future of Cities , an opportunity for dialogue between journalists, experts to draw up thoughts and discuss trends in topics such as housing, transport, education, health and other relevant topics that are part of the daily management of the local public.

For this first edition we will have the participation of the architect and urbanist Ermínia Maricato and the director of the ICLEI Rodrigo Perpétuo, in addition to a representative of the Program, UN-Habitat, with the mediation of the journalist Dal Marcondes, the Agência Envolverde.
