City of the future – Four Commandments

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

I got a chance to watch the TED video presentation by the Mayor of Rio di Janeiro in Brazil, Eduardo Paes, about his recommendations on the City of the future. Rio di Janeiro also has won the bid to conduct the 2016 Summer Olympics, beating the top challenges from Madrid, Tokyo and Chicago.

Eduardo speaks on TED about his views on how to build city of the future. He listed four commandments as a must for the city of the future.

I have pasted the four commandments here below for easy reference (video is also provided below).

  1. City of the future has to be environment friendly
  2. City of the future has to deal with mobility and integration
  3. City of the future has to be socially integrated
  4. City of the future has to use technology to be present

A few points impressed me a lot.
