The competition is seeking proposal for "a good place" where there are people, families and communities who carry their stories on their backs.

Ideasforward wants to give young creative people from around the world the opportunity to express their views on the future of societies through their innovative and visionary proposals. 24H is an experimental platform seeking progressive ideas that reflect on emerging themes. The eco design, sustainable architecture, new materials, concepts and technologies are compelling issues in the societies of the future and the involvement of the whole community is imperative.

Favela

Dumping, scarcity, droughts, shortages, and the need to survive raised thousands of people against a government that, at the expense of taxes, intended to turn land into money.

Favela ceased to be just a broad bean-shaped medicinal plant, which gave its name to the hill where it was born, to become what to this day still characterizes this life force that is conflicted daily between the desire to flee and to stay.

In the favela, fear faces security and insecurity defies trust. A place where there are people, families and communities who carry their stories on their backs.
