Sustainable Cities & Communities
Our vision is to develop and build cities and human settlements which are safe, resilient and sustainable. These nature-based solutions provide benefits when mitigating climate change, enhancing biodiversity and land restoration. It also increases social and economic benefits, such as new jobs, food security, and improved human health.
A sustainable city is a system which maintains itself over time and provide adequately for those in the system throughout that time. We achieve sustainability, by implementing it in all aspects of life, which includes the environment, natural resources, employment, infrastructure, and more. We enhance sustainable cities by tacking:
Public transportation – to ensure robustness, reliability, and free of fossil fuels
Buildings - constructed with sustainable materials
Streets - walkable with places to rest and socialize
Citizens - access to safe and affordable housing
Cities - shouldn’t grow at a rate that is destructive to the surrounding natural environment
