Sustainable Eco Town & Living – When It’s More Than A Trend

Sustainability is a hotbed topic for recent debates concerning the future of estate development and energy solutions amidst global concern for the ecosystem. Greening today’s community in Singapore to help mitigate climate change and reduce carbon footprints is becoming a priority. Green spaces have much more to offer for a better quality of life without any compromises to the world we live in. Thus, many invest in eco residential homes and highly sustainable practices in commercial development in local and foreign lands.

Sustainability – More Than Just A Trend?

The Tengah project is one example of a currently-developing sustainable environment that is set to be a city state’s smart and eco-friendly town. Many also dub it a ‘forest town’, promoting it as a centre for recreational activities while incorporating underground routes or motor vehicles. Apart from Tengah, there are also surges of green efforts and advocacy down to the individual levels initiated by younger generations. The emergence of greening the city-state is more than a trend. It is a growing response to duty—a mission to fulfil.

The Tengah future development serves as a local beacon for the gander eco-affirming transformation. In today’s world of growing concern for climate change, what does it mean to live ‘sustainably’? Perhaps, that may be a question for many residents and homeowners. Creating a sustainable place to live is simply a transformation towards energy-efficiency use with minimal to no carbon footprints. The fight against climate change continues to be an inspiring agenda for newer innovations and technological solutions that uplifts the quality of life and way of living for a global net zero goal.

What Makes An Eco-City?

An eco-city is more than just a ‘concept’ or an ‘idea’ for cities to harmonise with nature. Today, eco-city is becoming a living fulfilment to provide answers for human well-being, such as enhancing health and quality of life for its residents and safeguarding the ecosystem. From eco town to sustainable residential units, it incorporates technology and innovative ways to bring about enhancements across its citizens and surrounding. It is now a solution for the metropolitan that depends on its ‘design’. Here are what makes eco-city the way they are now:

High Ecological Awareness

Before solutions and innovations take place to provide an ‘answer’ to a sustainable city, there should be awareness. Smart and eco-cities help its residents understand where their place is in nature. There are shared boundaries and responsibilities to maintain a high-quality ecosystem. It encompasses their lifestyle and consumption behaviour.

Access To Public Resources & Greener Spaces

A smart eco town in Singapore should provide access for its residents to nature preserves and recreational areas, which is a ‘key’ element. Its infrastructural designs and urban landscaping should have these public resources to support and promote a diverse ecosystem and enhance mental wellness for its residents.

Improve Waste Management & Water Conservation

Another vital element for an eco town or city is highly sustainable urban planning, which includes better waste management and water conservation. With these two in urban planning, eco-cities are less likely to experience water shortages and improve waste reduction. At the same time, it also boosts the availability of water for recreational use while reducing the environmental pollution.

Ecological Security

Residents and urban wildlife can experience reliable supplies of food and water with secured housing against calamities. It also ensures clean air and a pollutant-free environment that affirms and stimulates physical and mental wellness.
