- #SDG11: SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES - 07 days to Rio 2016 (português abaixo) "I studied architecture to provide housing and spaces for all, but the market sometimes complicates things. We have to survive, don't we? I came from Switzerland to live a new experience in Rio de Janeiro. I like to see and meet new people. To exchange ideas inspires me. Living here helps me to meet new sides of society - and the carioca is very open, eases the adaptation. Architecture is the organization of space, then the architect has the power to open ways to others. We need to fulfill our role effectively. The architecture was made for people. Our most important mission is to make a difference in their lives." – Barbara Iseli, 37 years old ---- #ODS11: Cidades e Comunidades Sustentáveis - 07 dias para as Olimpíadas "Estudei arquitetura para oferecer moradia e espaços a todos, mas o mercado, às vezes, complica as coisas. Temos que sobreviver, não é? Vim da Suíça para viver uma nova experiência no Rio de Janeiro. Gosto de ver e conhecer novas pessoas. A troca de ideias me inspira. Morar aqui me ajuda a conhecer novos lados da sociedade – e o carioca é muito aberto, facilita a adaptação. A arquitetura é a organização do espaço, então o arquiteto tem o poder de abrir caminhos para outras pessoas. Precisamos cumprir nosso papel com eficiência. A arquitetura foi feita para as pessoas. Nossa maior importância é fazer a diferença na vida delas." – Barbara Iseli, 37 anos #humansofrio #humansofmyworld #rio2016 #arquitetura PNUD Brasil United Nations Development Programme - UNDP UNDP in Latin America and the Caribbean ONU Brasil SDG Action Campaign UN-HABITAT TETO Brasil 3 hours ago
- #SDG4: QUALITY EDUCATION - 08 days to Rio 2016 (português abaixo) "When you are part of the troop you don't notice somethings because you are in service, take your gun and go for your task. But at the administration I saw some policemen suffering with serious problems. The professionals are always judged by public opinion, but also need a more caring look at them. Three years ago, I started a campaign to collect adult diapers for a police officer who was shot and became paraplegic. After a lot of mobilization, we got almost a ton of diapers! (...) Education for me is the basis of everything. I have always searched to compementary income so that my children could study in good schools. They know what is the reality. When I take them to a handicapped friend, they see how life could be harder. Thank God I'm fine and, while I´m good, I'll keep doing good to others." – Lieutenant Silva, 52 years old ---- #ODS4: EDUCAÇÃO DE QUALIDADE - 08 dias para as Olimpíadas "Quando você é parte da tropa acaba não reparando, porque você entra em serviço, pega sua arma e vai cumprir sua etapa. Mas, na administração, vi que alguns policiais sofriam com problemas graves. Os profissionais são sempre muito julgados pela opinião pública, mas também precisam de um olhar mais cuidadoso sobre eles. Há três anos, comecei uma campanha para arrecadar fraldas geriátricas para um policial que foi baleado e ficou paraplégico. Após muita mobilização, conseguimos quase uma tonelada de fraldas! (...) Educação para mim é base de tudo. Sempre busquei complementar minha renda para que minhas filhas pudessem estudar em boas escolas. Elas sabem o que é a realidade. Quando as levo à casa de um colega cadeirante, elas vêem o quanto a vida poderia ser mais difícil. Graças a Deus estou bem e, enquanto estiver bem, vou continuar fazendo o bem." – Tenente da Silva, 52 anos #humansofrio #humansofmyworld #rio2016 PNUD Brasil United Nations Development Programme - UNDPUNDP in Latin America and the Caribbean SDG Action Campaign 8 hours ago
