Sustainable and Resilient Eco-Cities – Key Challenges and Opportunities


Part I: From Design to Reality – Exploring Eco-Cities Case Studies

In the 1970s, the eco-city meant “An eco-city is an ecologically healthy city, meaning that the city design is strongly informed by knowledge of ecology and its design principles”. Nowadays, eco-cities are defined as “Cities that create economic opportunities for their citizens in an inclusive, sustainable, and resource-efficient way, while also protecting and nurturing the local ecology and global public goods, such as the environment, for future generations.”
A host of other factors influence the rise of the modern eco-city, such as affordability and demand on the parts of the general public and government policymakers, along with energy-and resource-efficiency and land conservation.
Therefore, this session aims to discuss the strategies and policies that will support the creation of a sustainable and resilient eco-city, as well as sharing the challenges of implementation.

Coffee Break


Part II: Relationship between Green Buildings & Eco-Cities

As the world’s urban population increases, architects and planners are constantly mapping out ways to make cities more ecological. Cities produce a vast amount of emissions and waste, putting a strain on both human health and ecological environment.
High-density urban areas can be more energy efficient and pollute less if green methods are used in design and construction. Solutions can cover approaches to managing energy consumption in heating, cooling, and transportation, and transitioning from traditional to renewable sources of energy.
The benefits are undoubtedly beneficial for all – climate mitigation, cleaner air, better health, economic development and job creation and increased energy security.
This session will discuss the challenges for cities in terms of energy consumption and sourcing, as well as roadmaps towards a low carbon growth, exploring the latest innovative technology and strategies for green buildings that will benefit cities in the long term.
