Eco-cities of the future

Every day there are more and more cities which are becoming more and more eco-friendly. Would you like to know what measures they have taken to become more ecological? Find out here.

Concept Development
• Green Architecture:
Solar panels, vents, natural light, roofs that re-use rain water on walls to create shade – all these are some of the ways to have energy-saving houses and buildings.

• Non-polluting means of transportation:
Let’s welcome the use of bicycles! The idea of these cities is to reduce the use of cars and motorcycles as much as they can. The green wave involves walking, cycling, or rollerblading. In addition, aside from taking care of the environment, you get to exercise. The benefits are twofold! In some cities there are also buses that run on solar energy.

• Parks for everyone:
They are very important for city dwellers since they act as lungs cleaning polluted air. In addition, they are ideal to practice sports, get together with friends and enjoy nature.


Bits and pieces
Hard work to become the most ecological country
In China, the most populated country in the world, 130 sustainable cities are being built. The most eagerly awaited one is the eco-friendly city called Tanjin, which will be finished by mid-2020. It’s going to be absolutely modern! It is composed by a network of ecological trains, solar and wind energy, green roofs and roughly 350,000 inhabitants.

People who decide to live there will have to learn a lot about being eco-friendly. Refuse collection will be selective, there will only be 120 liters of water available per day for each one of its inhabitants and everything will be within easy reach so that everyone can have easy walking access. Isn’t it great!
