5 Green Cities of the Future

Standard

How do green cities help in the effort against climate change? Eco-cities all share similar characteristics: They aim to reduce or eliminate fossil-fuel use, adopt sustainable building practices, promote "green space" and clean air quality, implement energy-efficient and widely available public transportation, create walkable city designs and develop well-organized mixed-use neighborhoods that combine living, working and shopping. These qualities add up to sustainableurbanism.

  1. Antonio Rossol

    The world population has
    doubled within the last 60 years. The demands for energy and goods have
    enormously raised…

    I believe that the attempt to create more sustainable cities can actually help
    our environment and the economy, as well as make big cities more livable for
    the citizens. I searched the web a little and lots of companies are now
    focusing on developing new technologies and changing the appearance of US
    cities. Siemens, for instance, has just launched a new website: http://www.usa.siemens.com/sustainablecities/index.html
    Let’s hope we somehow manage to create more jobs here in the US – I believe
    that politics and corporations need to work closely together.
