Jaime Lerner: Innovation is Just Starting Something New
When I was working in Cuba, Castro used to talk for 11, 12 hours. When I am happy, I have a bit of the Cuban spirit. And tonight I am happy.
Clearly feeling the Cuban spirit, legendary former Mayor of Curitiba Jaime Lerner delivered the keynote address to the 2008 Ecocity World Summit last week, discussing his 40 years of experience working in cities, "urban acupuncture" in Curitiba and how to become an expert on public transportation in five minutes.
