Challenges for metropolitan cities in the 21st century

27/28 August | Swiss/Brazilian symposium in Rio

The Swiss/Brazilian symposium – «Challenges for metropolitan cities in the 21st century» aims to promote the exchange of experiences between Swiss and Latin American professionals on the development of environmentally and socially more equitable cities, in the midst of contemporary urban problems. The challenges grow even more when cities face the arduous task of organizing mega global events. Brazil, for instance, is preparing to address a myriad of issues to successfully host the 2014 World Cup and the Olympic Games in 2016.
