Brasil: The most beautiful street in the world

The Porto Alegre Vive [“Porto Alegre Lives”, PT] blog tells us[PT] about the Portuguese blog A Sombra Verde [“The Green Shadow”, PT] that elected one of Porto Alegre‘s streets as “the most beautiful street in the world”, by the beauty of it's trees and the hard fight it's inhabitants are facing to preserve them. Maybe these blog posts should inspire many others around the world.

  • Obrigado por citarem a rua Gonçalo de Carvalho.
    O fato da rua ter sido tombada pela prefeitura não significa que suas árvores não sejam ameaçadas.
    Há muito o que fazer para preservar o meio ambiente e a qualidade de vida, dentro das cidades também.
    O fundamental é a conscientização que se deve fazer algo e realmente FAZER!
