The Global Frontier: An Urban Agenda
This moment in history is but a blink, and we are called to act on what we see. The world is witnessing unprecedented rates of urban development and economic growth. Due to the demands of globalization and the rise of the information society, people are uprooting themselves from rural environments and migrating to bustling cities in search for knowledge and opportunity. The rise in urbanization is contributing to increasing levels of consumption and waste, which will have severe environmental implications for generations to follow. The time to live in the know and think for the future is now.
A new City to Alleviate urban Population pressure in India, without all the waste
Indiaâ€™s Urban Future
By the year 2008, half of the worldâ€™s population will be living in urban areas. India already boasts thirty-five highly concentrated cities, each with populations of at least one million. Its high-tech cities, such as Bangalore and Hyderabad, are expanding at very rapid rates. About half of these increases are the result of rural-urban migration. New planned communities and urban centers are needed to absorb population growth and mounting urbanization pressures, and also create opportunities for education, employment and investment, particularly in the information technology (IT) sector. NanoCity, in the state of Haryana, will address these needs with an eco-friendly approach. It will repackage the urban experience in a planned, sustainable way. It will aim to serve as a model of socially responsible living for all future development in India and beyond.
