Chances of urbanization
Alex Steffen addresses an interesting aspect when talking about urbanization. Some of the projects mentioned are already established in several places of the world. Anyway, in our last Natural Resources class we covered “sustainable behaviour” – and especially from this point of view, these projects seem to be an important part of future urban development: “enormous amounts of our energy use are predestined by the kinds of communities and cities, that we live in”. Therefore, it probably makes a big difference in future urban planning, when people are made “surrounded by places, that make them feel at home”.
