- #SDG4: QUALITY EDUCATION - 07 days to Rio 2016 (português abaixo) "I was born in Peru, but I already lived in Bahia, Recife, Manaus and today I'm living in Rio de Janeiro. I stayed here because the economic conditions are better. I like the city, the people, and the nature here. But of course I see a lot of violence too. The country's political life is largely responsible for the social imbalance. Few people have a lot, a lot of people have little and everything is more complicated this way. So I think the education is fundamental to change things. In addition to health, of course. Without health we die and then we cannot change anything." – Felipe Maximiliano, 55 years old ---- #ODS4: EDUCAÇÃO DE QUALIDADE - 07 dias para as Olimpíadas 2016 "Nasci no Peru, mas já morei na Bahia, Recife, Manaus e, hoje, vivo no Rio de Janeiro. Fiquei aqui porque as circunstâncias econômicas são melhores. Gosto da cidade, das pessoas, da natureza daqui. Mas é claro que vejo muita violência também. A vida política do país é a grande responsável do desequilíbrio social. Pouca gente tem muito, muita gente tem pouco e fica tudo mais complicado desse jeito. Por isso, acho que educação é fundamental para mudar as coisas. Além da saúde, claro. Sem saúde a gente morre e aí não pode mudar nada." – Felipe Maximiliano, 55 anos #humansofrio #humansofmyworld #rio2016 #catete PNUD Brasil Programa de las Naciones Unidas para el Desarrollo - PNUD United Nations Development Programme - UNDP UNDP in Latin America and the Caribbean ONU Brasil SDG Action Campaign 11 hours ago
