    It is very important that every population knows possible solutions or even scientific studies in a popular way. So they can charge and demand that mayors not forget this missing part for healthy cities (political will). Very important this video. Let's spread it. Suggestion that is translated into several languages.

    I see in my city, Medellín, Colombia, S.A., that is going on a intensive building activity, changing quiet neighbourhoods in places loudest, contaminated, insecure and plein of buildings and cars. It is better to form new periferic comunities with services and peace.
