How will our future cities get greener?


How will our future cities look?

BBC News, 17 Feb. 2013.

Imagine a city of the future. Do you see clean streets, flying cars and robots doing all the work?

No-one really knows what the future holds, but the reality now is that our urban spaces are overcrowded and polluted. [...] The time is ripe, say experts, to start designing smarter urban environments [...].
Greenification [...Ideas] revolve around the idea that smarter equals greener. Sustainability experts predict carbon-neutral cities full of electric vehicles and bike‑sharing schemes, with better air quality [...]. Visions of a green city often include the highest skyscrapers where living and office space vie with floating greenhouses or high‑rise vegetable patches and green roofs [...]. Hug a tree - in Madrid there is a scheme to have citizens adopt a tree, to make them more aware of environmental needs.

Practise: Predict 5 events that will happen in your town in the next 25 years to make it greener.
