We need Jaime Lerner as governor of Jakarta. Below is his presentation at TED, and he came across as a very down to earth person. His presentation is concise, simple, but profound.
Some of my favorite quotes:
- To fix a city, we have to start from teaching the children because they will teach the parents.
- Creativity happens when you cut one zero from the budget.
- We have to work fast because we don't have the whole time to plan. We can't have all the answer. It's important to just start, and contribution from the people is important, because they could teach you when you're not in the right track.
And he sings too, at the end of the presentation.
It's possible, it's possible, you can do it, you can do it!
