Looks like China is leading the movement for GREEN Cities!
This will be Liuzhou, Guangxi Province, China.
Expected finish date is in 2020.

Designed by by Stefano Boeri, this concept started in 2011 in Milan, Italy of a mini-city of 2.5 acres that is the prototype for the Forest City in China. This is an actual community in Milan now.

The Forest city will fight global air pollution by growing trees and plants in high density in an elevated, multi-floor city. The goal is to lower CO2 output and reabsorb it because trees and plants take in CO2 for NUTRIENT for photosynthesis! https://www.botany.org/PlantTalkingPoints/CO2andTrees.php

The ideal goal is to grow almost 1 million plants and 40,000 trees that is capable of absorbing nearly 10,000 tons of carbon dioxide and 57 tons of pollutants annually. Not only is it absorbing CO2 but it is also estimated of giving out 900 tons of oxygen!!!! This will help the city and surrounding cities fight air pollution.

No more asthma and lower lung diseases!

Not only does it fight air pollution but it is designed to dampen NOISE pollution and lessen the urban HEAT with the greeneries by creating its own microclimate.

The ultimate goal is to make FOREST-City self sustainable. It will be powered by geothermal and solar energy!

Liuzhou Forest City will include residential areas, commercial and recreational spaces, two schools, and a hospital with a railway for public transportation. It is expected to house 20,000 people per petal. 5 petals will create the ideal structure of the Forest City.

From the blueprint it looks like it is built next to a river for its own water resource. The city is designed to be completely self-sustainable.

This is a beautiful concept! Something I would love to live in. I will definitely visit the city in 2020 once it is built!

When this city is built, I will make it a point to visit. It's like Avatar meets the Jetsons.

Really great project, and much needed!! Thanks for this information!! Greetings!!

Interesting project. Something I'll be keeping an eye on.

oaw looking very nice...

This is a great initiative and something I am very interested in, it seems we all can do this on a small scale, producing a sustainable balance in one's living and/or land one lives on. I would like to visit this someday and also do this for myself and my community. Thanks for sharing this article.

The smallest concept of this that are similar to Forest Cities are Earthships that can be set up in a smaller community.

I've been learning about those lately! Earthships are really cool in that they incorporate a plethora of concepts: made of recyclables/trash, often use solar but are built to conserve heat/cold, water cisterns, use of grey water on a greenhouse which surrounds and insulates the main building, and more.
