This project will enter and talk directly with the FAPESP Project "Global Environmental Change: The Environmental Policies in China with reference to Brazil" (2013/19771-7), coordinated by Prof. Dr. Leila da Costa Ferreira (IFCH/NEPAM/UNICAMP). The objective is to contribute to studies of the Brazil-China axis, intending to investigate the responses that are being studied, structured and disseminated in the cities of Sao Paulo and Beijing to issues that arise in relation to the theme of global environmental changes, including climate change, and can directly affect these crowded urban areas. There is an effort of different levels - global, national and local - in the search for alternatives in order to reduce the effects and problems caused by these modifications on the planet and risks which become increasingly present both in daily life and in the political agenda. In this context, it is intriguing to note cases of Sao Paulo and Beijing, because both are industrial and economic centers of great importance and therefore, even if they have undergone different processes of modernization, feature sets of conditions amenable to be associated.
