The Sustainable City embodies a fundamental change in the concept of future cities. Bringing forward future net-zero carbon targets, the innovative design behind The Sustainable City communities enables food security, provides clean energy, reduces and recycles waste and water, and places an emphasis on clean mobility and eco-friendly products. With a target of bringing forward 2050 Paris Climate Agreement targets, the design of these communities prioritises sustainability without compromising on the quality of life.
The Singapore Pavilion encourages visitors to contemplate their roles in fostering stronger relationships between nature and the built environment, and this is what The Sustainable City has been doing by building cities and communities that not only protect the environment and lower the impact of climate change, but also support economic growth and stability.
These live-work-thrive communities are not only designed to enhance the quality of life of its residents, but to also inspire visitors to adopt sustainability as a way of life, and set a global benchmark for sustainable living.
Climate Change is the greatest threat facing humanity, it is not the problem of one country or a few countries: it is the problem of mankind, and as a global challenge, it requires global solidarity. We need to work together and to move beyond climate talk to climate action. The pathway to a habitable future leads in a singular direction. There is only one solution to the devastating impacts of climate change - eliminate, reduce, and offset all manmade carbon emissions, today. There is no time for delay and no room for excuses.
