Some of the key features of a fully sustainable city are, for example, sustainable transport. Urban mobility would be based on efficient forms of public transport, such as trains, trams, electric buses and bike-sharing systems. Priority would be given to pedestrian and non-motorised mobility options. In addition, the use of private cars would be drastically reduced, and they would preferably be electric or powered by clean energy.
The city would be prepared to meet the challenges of climate change, with resilience measures such as flood management, storm protection and long-term infrastructure planning.
Achieving a fully sustainable city is an ambitious goal that requires a joint effort by governments, communities, businesses and citizens. It is about creating an urban environment that promotes long-term economic prosperity, social equity and environmental health.
