Forest city: China is building the first "forest city" of 40,000 trees to combat air pollution.
The country has been leading the way in "green living" in recent years, with the government announcing that it had completed the construction of the world's largest floating solar farm. Now, in an attempt to curb the production of toxic gases, the country continues to pave the way so to speak) with the construction of one of the first forest cities in the world. Designed by Stefano Boeri, which you might remember also designed two "vertical skyscraper forests", the city is currently being built in Liuzhou, Guangxi province. Once completed, the new city will receive 30,000 people and, thanks to the abundance of trees and plants, will absorb almost 10,000 tons of CO2, 57 tons of pollutants per year and produce approximately 900 tons of oxygen per year. The city will reach these figures quite impressive thanks to approximately one million plants of more than 100 species, as well as 40,000 trees planted in facades on almost every imaginable surface. The new Liuzhou Forest City will connect to the existing Liuzhou through a series of services of fast train and electric cars; There will also be several schools and two hospitals. There are also plans to make the city self-sustainable in terms of power, thanks to geothermal and solar energy resources.
