Redesigning Cities through Young Urbans

This session is about how using education and media, it is possible to inspire Brazilian Youth to create projects that can improve their cities. From researches during Stella's PhD about Smart City in Singapore and in Dublin and a YouTube Channel-Smart City Talks where interviewees range from MIT Professors to Brazilian Housing Activists, Stella shares knowledge aiming to connect Young Urbans to their Cities.
Presenting Brazilian cases as Dandara Building, an abandoned government building restored to comfortable apartments in São Paulo downtown area, which improved the neighborhood, Stella demonstrates that Brazil can be a reference of Urban Innovation and she also shows the importance of Young Urbans being aware of the use of technology to integrate Tech Projects and Social Innovation.
