Green Urbanism is a forward-thinking concept. It aims to implement components of renewable energy, sustainable transportation, and environmental and health hazards while maintaining cities' heritage, cultural, and architectural assets. Cities should strive to create a sustainable environment for their residents, with multiple eco-friendly modes of transportation to get to a destination, whether on foot, by bicycle, or by public transportation, and where the surroundings aid in the development of creative and healthy minds for future generations, securing their futures. This is precisely what green urbanism tries to achieve. It addresses the growing problem of urban intensification and recommends a greener strategy that, if implemented effectively, can be a source of economic gain for all.
The hour for action has arrived. The age of fossil fuel use has proven to be one of scarcity and is costing us our planet. Food price increases are causing widespread anxiety around the world, and water scarcity is looming in many parts of the planet. We are on the verge of a new era for humanity, and it is up to us to decide what type of era it will be. To address the problem of climate change, a new and sustainable approach that dictates how the majority of people live will be required. A green strategy.
