Sao Paulo 2050

By 2050, a municipal project to clean debris from the Tiete and Pinheiros rivers is nearing completion. Canals now line the central streets, turning São Paulo’s once congested roads into places for walking and cycling, and canal-borne water taxis have become popular with São Paulo residents and tourists alike.
Most parcels are delivered by solar-powered quadcopters, thus saving energy. Mid-air collisions are avoided through the use of a single AI-based system controlling all of the drones.
The cityscape is being transformed by giant skyscrapers built using composite materials, replacing the once swarming low-rise buildings. Meanwhile, the notorious favelas — poor and criminal districts — have all but disappeared. The majority of people work remotely from office apartments with bird’s-eye views over the metropolis.

COPIN I do not think that people born between 2000 and 2019 who will be 50 and 31 years old who were raised according to today's standards will accept all these innovations as quickly as possible. Everything will depend on the political will and if we analyze what is happening today, namely the desire for protectionism, populism, the destruction of natural resources from a purely economic point of view, we can doubt the will of the States of sacrifice the economy to ecology. Maybe in 2100, if humanity did not destroy itself. I am French, the text is a Google translation. 31 Jul 2019
