In my work I look at peoples from all environments – cities, rural urban areas, deserts, industrialised areas – and I look at how people live, and I ask myself, ‘How can we improve the living conditions of people in all these environments?’ And we learn, all the time, from all our contacts in all the cities we work with, and Portugal has set an example of a pluralist society, which is remarkable, which should be honoured, which should be recognised, which should be copied.
