Sustainability

  • Transportation/Roads
    • Solar Roadways
    • 4000 mph vacuum tube trains
    • Park connectors (to connect public spaces in a running route and promotes healthy lifestyles)
  • Food
    • Organic Food
    • Farmers Markets
    • Cultural festivals on a regular basis to showcase the diverse foods of the world
  • Buildings
    • Vertical gardens
    • Rooftop raves/gardens
    • Sustainable urban drainage systems (maintains hygiene)
    • Living spaces of varied price ranges integrated throughout apartment buildings (promotes financial integration)
  • Nature
    • We have decided to add natural features to our city to allow interaction between people. The use of nature in an urban environment reduces pollution levels within the city as well as preserving some of the nature that may have been present before. The introduction of natural environment also has beneficial effects to health. As published in the journal of Physiological Anthropology, there is a positive correlation between having natural features in an urban environment and the mental and physical health of the residence surrounding them.
    • Public Parks
    • Trees and landscaping along paths and walkways
    • Bridges for animals (prevents road kill)
  • Living
    • Random multisensory areas that people would gravitate towards (encourage differentiate exchange) i.e. water fountains, light features...
    • Sports facilities
    • Waste disposal will be landfill as essentials only/ for example an essential landfill item would be hospital waste, which can plausibly be bio-hazard. There will be RECYCLING. Programs for recycling will be put in place within the city, paper, plastic and metals can all be recycled with special contracts with companies to take away electronic goods for disassembly
    • People who want live to live in our city must apply for a residence visa.
  • Energy
    • Solar power (Buildings and Roadways to support public transport system)
    • Wind power
    • Tidal power
    • Kangaroo-Treadmill power (In Development)
    • Airborne Wind Turbines (http://www.google.com/makani/technology/) (reduces carbon footprint)
    • Positive use of sewage for energy production
