The Jaime Lerner Institute was born to awaken a positive awareness of the potential of cities.
Each city, from the smallest to the largest, is an agent of transformation and could be an example and reach its neighbors, as a domino effect, changing the country.
For this to happen, it is necessary to strengthen local power, but it is equally essential that city managers are the agents of change.
It is with this strategic vision that the Jaime Lerner Institute, a non-profit and non-party entity, guides its action, instructing the city halls for innovative administrations.
