In one article we talked about sustainable living, something all people should try. Today we want to talk about the most sustainable cities in the world, do not miss it because you are going to love it!

How to achieve sustainable cities and communities

Cities play a fundamental role in the fight against climate change because they can change the way people live to improve the environment.

A sustainable city has been able to:

  • Reduce CO2 and improve the quality of the air by introducing greenery into the urban environment.
  • Has promoted renewable energies to conserve and protect natural resources.
  • Has successfully implemented sustainable mobility and the use of public transport.
  • Is committed to a circular economy.

Five ways to make cities more sustainable

Promoting urban agriculture

Do you know that by preserving agricultural land in urban areas, we can shorten supply chains and the amount of CO2 emitted when transporting food from rural to urban areas?

In addition, the production and the sale of fresh food can reduce the environmental impact of food distribution and improve the access to nutritious foods.

Encouraging healthy diets

Another important factor is a lifestyle. In cities that have a lot of fast food services, available food is often highly processed. This is a problem that governments have to face because undernutrition is also a characteristic of non-sustainable places.

Reducing and managing food waste

A lot of food is thrown away and it’s something that can’t happen with the current situation of our planet. The majority of the causes are poor food planning, bad packaging, and cultural practices.

In addition, food waste that is not recycled is filling landfills and as a consequence, it decomposes and generates methane, which is very harmful to the planet, more than CO2!

More green spaces!

With the expansion of urban areas, a lot of green spaces are disappearing. We have to take into account that these areas are very helpful and essential for improving the climate change situation. For example, green areas improve air quality and overall health.

Cities with surrounding rural areas

Cities depend on rural areas for food and water supply and that’s why it’s important to reconnect the city with these areas. This helps cities to have nutritious food, rural farmers’ markets and to create jobs that would help to improve the planet issue.
