The care of urban rivers and the improvement of transport are complex issues and for these to change in the country depends mostly on governments, institutions, organizations and even companies. But despite this, citizens and their communities are essential for change to take place. The demand for sustainable urban development, the interest in generating change, being properly informed and encouraging others to inform themselves, is of great help.
In general, the protection of the environment must be taken into account at all times, but they are also necessary elements to improve the quality of life of all. If you want to really help, you must start by educating yourself on these issues, participating with different organizations and helping local projects that wish to improve the urban development of cities.
