What will the city of the future look like? In Pixar’s film Wall E, the future of the city may not be so beautiful: the sky is full of yellow sand, full of garbage, humans are forced to leave their homes, leaving only robots to sort out the garbage. And humans roaming in space will only be able to return home when they find greenery on Earth.
Humanity should not have to wait till then to realize that clean air, clean water, diverse ecology and sustainable environment are so valuable. The city of the future belongs to our children. Maria Montessori said Children acquire knowledge through experience in the environment. And the most valuable thing we can give them is our beautiful home.
In the Garden City of Singapore, we have many green spaces, parks, ponds, and a rich variety of flora and fauna. With the mission for building a Smart nation and with government’s Green Plan 2030, we will develop in greater harmony with our ecological environment.
Our city in nature, our city for the future.
