As part of our coverage on “The New City” we asked our bloggers for some pictures from their cities. Are there any places in their cities that are prime examples for sustainable urban living? But it could also be a negative example in order to show how a city should not look like.
The question of sustainability is not that of energy efficiency, transport and demographic alone, but also about sustainability of social and cultural capital of a people. A city is defined by its inhabitants, their faith, their interactions. In a crowded city like Mumbai where there are hardly any public places left, streets, railway tracks and footpaths become the makeshift prayer halls of the devout.
