We love forests, they’re the lungs of the earth and that’s why the Smart Forest City excites us.
In fact we love forests so much that we’ve examined forest planting drones, edible forest gardens and forest bathing in recent weeks but we’ve not touched on forest cities until now.
If this sounds like the kind of place you’d want to live in – you’ll need to head to Cancun, Mexico.
A Smart Forest City?
Yes, in fact, this will be a renewed shopping district which will have 2.3 trees per inhabitant and deliver a mixed-use development that is 100% self-sufficient not just for energy but also for food!
In total they plan to plant over 7.5 million plants including 200,000 trees and welcome 130,000 residents to Smart Forest City – Cancun.
They intend to meet the energy needs by using a solar panel ring and the food needs using an advanced aquaponics system in an agricultural belt on the edge of the city.
All vehicles within the city will be electric too.
We’re already thinking of packing our bags and moving, see you there?
