Vale do Pinhão
Keeping up with the rhythm of today’s society is not an easy task for local governments - especially while trying to maintain a high quality of life for its citizens. The Pinhão Valley is Curitiba’s main initiative promoting a vibrant urban economy.
Over the past three years, the city’s administration has made innovation a priority and has consistently implemented policies that foster an ecosystem of innovation in the city, while mobilizing a variety of local actors.
The project has two main goals: to promote urban requalification and to create opportunities for citizen's economic and social development. With a lot of political will, the project’s implementation is based on the pillars of citizen participation and professional mentoring. Overall, this effort has created a knock-on effect that has reinvented the way people see their roles' in city life.
