One aspect of a Green City would be the tree life alongside the roadways creating a jungle like atmosphere, which exists in some cases however not yet in large scale implementations. A modernized economy, skilled and educated workforce, full employment of all citizens and leading edge companies are all intended to be real in 2030. The plan includes the implementation of a Community Preservation Plan which will promote the preservation of historic landmarks, historic districts, and surrounding areas. Also the development of neighborhood plans in each of the eleven "Good Neighbors' Planning Alliance" districts is to take place and work around development issues and such. Each neighborhood concentrates its efforts on rebuilding around public infrastructure, as well as supporting economic development opportunities.
It is also very environmentally friendly. The fibrous base of corrugated cardboard is ideal for recycling (Jack, n.d.). When recycled, paper packaging can be turned into things like presentation boards and moving boxes. Paperboard packaging is inherently positioned to make a significant impact on renewable, recyclable packaging that saves energy from production to shipment to storage, and then back again to the paper mill (Paperboard Packaging, n.d.). With every advantage comes a disadvantage.
This strategy is effective as the plants grow up to four times faster and seasonal crops can be harvested all year round. Also the surplus water can be recycled, which cuts use by 20%, and also the plants need fewer chemical pesticides as they are being grown indoors. However, as the plants are not grown in soil, the produce is bland and cannot produce true organic produce. Also the heated greenhouses and lights are wasteful and the greenhouses are an eyesore. An example of aquaponics, which is a combination of hydrophonics and aerophonics, in the UK is in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
(Mieg &Töpfer, 2013)Urban sprawl has the benefit because of that low density area is more environmental friendly, the large amount vegetations filled in the low-dense area can absorb the carbon dioxide made by the activities of human beings, which causes less amounts of air and water has been polluted by the pollutants. It has been observed that the more green areas are preserved in low-dense areas and there are more open spaces for people to entertain. (Xu,2014) But at the meanwhile,in the reality,developing low-dense area need to replace farmland or open space. However, the approach of urban sprawl will causing the lost of open space and natural habitats because of land
It can also reduce cooling and stormwater runoff. Green roofs can used to filter pollutants and carbon dioxide out of the air which helps lower disease rates such as asthma. Besides, green roof helps to insulate a building for sound; the soil helps to block lower frequencies and the plants block higher frequencies. With green roofs, water is stored by the substrate and then taken up by the plants from where it is returned to the atmosphere through transpiration and evaporation. Green roofs not only retain rainwater, but also moderate the temperature of the water and act as natural filters for any of the water that happens to run
They are called the “virgin mountains.” All of those natural sources make Tegucigalpa a beautiful place; nevertheless, it also makes it very difficult for everybody to move from one place to another. The only method of transportation is the public bus service. Therefore, the only way to see the whole city, and all the beautiful natural places that are there, is by owning a car and use it to move all over the place. Another important thing that makes Tegucigalpa a beautiful place is the people. Tegucigalpa is populated mainly by farmers.
Living green is a great idea to preserve our environment and natural resources, but unless you have the financial backing you might not fully achieve green living. New construction techniques have lead to the development of innovative materials and design concepts. Green buildings are designed, constructed and commissioned to ensure they are healthy for their occupants. Successfully designed green projects can involve an extensive array of factors, ranging from the resourceful use of materials, to careful consideration of function, climate, and location. Green design can generally be organized into several areas of application.
Even in rain, the trees act as barriers making the trails usually less muddy to run in. As well as the Amazing workout I would also to discuss how this Bog is truly a precious natural resource that helps reduce the impact of climate change in several ways, the 3 examples I have are listed as followed:
‘Soft engineering is a better river flood management scheme than hard engineering,’ Discuss this view Soft engineering works with natural processes, it works with the environment and is often sustainable whereas hard engineering works against natural processes – controlling the environment. An example of soft engineering is naturalisation which is an attempt to alter natural geometry of a watercourse. For example planting trees – trees are planted near a river this means there Is greater interception of rainwater and a lower river discharge. An example of where naturalisation has occurred in the River Rhine where they are dredging clay out of flood plains creating a natural flood plain. An example of hard engineering is river straightening, this works by creating a smoother channel for faster flow to get water out of an area as quickly as possible.
