The environmental situation in China is horrible. The country which became an economic power, today has 70% of rivers contaminated and in its territory has 16 of the most polluted cities in the world. To minimize the effects of uncontrolled growth, is investing over 9,7 billion dollars to build a sustainable city.
Wind turbines, solar panels, electric vehicles and recycling. The city is designed to work only with green energy, avoiding any kind of damage on nature. Something around 350 thousand people will live in the district. It began to be built in 2007 and is scheduled for 2020 to be ready. In order to develop an ecological culture among the residents, it is expected that 90% of the people to walk, use bicycles or public transportation and the generation of household waste does not exceed 800 grams per person each day.
Connecting innovative technology to sustainable design concepts, eco-city will create an urban area in harmony with people, economy and environment, generating balance and proving that you can lead a comfortable life without harming nature. Certainly it would be a good example to be followed by other countries.
