If you’re planning something different for holidays this year, you might want to consider a couple of cities that are implementing solutions that make their beauty a lasting characteristic, not just a seasonal tourist facade.
Today, we have started to build cities that are safer, more energy efficient, environment-friendly and good for the economy. We have used various technologies and innovations to come up with what we call a “smart city”. It is the right solution to global problems of waste disposal, over consumption of nonrenewable energy sources, peace and security issues and water shortage.
We have carefully thought of how to turn around all these challenges. We needed to find a balance between the environment and all other factors. The solution must be sustainable enough to support human life and nature. Managing our resources has been a painful lesson learned. The inevitable effects of overlooking the environmental consequences from the industrialisation period are here. We experience extreme weather changes that cause droughts, floods, wildfires and superstorms. What can happen to human life seemed to be out of our control. Not anymore. We have decided to take bold actions. We have built smart cities that pioneer the applications of technologies to sustain a responsible resource and economic management. As you can see from the infographic, six countries have started. Six more are preparing to adopt these innovations.
Why wouldn’t you spend your holiday this year in one of those cities; besides the beauty, individual charm each of them possesses and breath-taking architecture, you can now observe the positive changes that new principles and active thinking has brought forth.
Behold, were now living our future.
