Health + Environment: healthy neighborhoods
Urban blight and "broken windows" in abandoned buildings, waste on streets, lack of sewage systems are the key factors in chronic health problems.
City Doctors approach engages communities and neighbors in rebuilding their blocks, cleaning up streets not only with machines, but with jobs that keep people self-reliant and off the streets.
Like the "escobitas" in Colombia, neighbors are empowered with instant communication and social connections to keep their streets and common spaces clean and safe.
Neighbors engage in ending "food deserts" and replacing junk food with fresh groceries grown in urban gardens and orchards.
From "escobitas" to small business
Managing waste and cleaning the neighborhood can evolve and generate steady jobs and small businesses like we did with the "escobitas" in Colombia
Building anew from the ground up
Neighbors, government and specialized contractors rebuild new infrastructure -from water, sweage and power to WiFi
