Sustainable City | Fully Charged

19191 ratings | 562105 views
We spent an amazing day at the Sustainable City, a housing development in Dubai with 3,500 people already living there and it's still not quite finished. This truly is a remarkable achievement, a stark lesson to building contractors the world over. It's not more expensive to build and it's hugely cheaper and more efficient to live in. Spread the word if you know any builders! More Info: http://www.thesustainablecity.ae/ Support the show on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/FullyChargedShow

There’s nothing sustainable about Dubai. The only reason they are able to do projects like these is because the Emiratis are experts at exploiting the impoverished people of the region for indentured labor

You could've kept the fans from the green house on a higher level in the dome or at top with a sun shade, throwing out more hot air than all air. Whereas the cold air will stay at the bottom anyway. Please write me back if there could be any correction to this

Also, based off my last comment about these being 800K+ this is FAR less impressive. Show me a site like this with affordable middle-class housing and I'll be impressed. The problem with renewables has ALWAYS been the cost.

Where is the city life? This looks so monotonous, an attractive city is diverse and have a good variation of housing, service and business to engage an active street life. Where is green spaces? And with green spaces I don't mean the gardens or the urban agriculture, I refer to green spaces and parks where people can enjoy an active lifestyle which is really important for public health and development. I would like the interviewer to ask more critical questions and I'm quite skeptical to these kind of "cities". Maybe because I'm Scandinavian and this is far from a nordic city planning.

Just in case anyone else is still curious about the price.. I just looked it up and they cost around 800K+ US

This is extremely cool, and I'd love to see if the same principles were applied within the context of new urbanism. Notice how many of the residents would still rely on cars for their commute. In a new urbanist ideal area, these buildings would be a few floors taller and the ground floor would not be residential, so businesses where people work and shop and entertain themselves are always within reach of their homes and don't require a walk, bike ride, transit, or car ride to a shopping center. Also, on a more personal note, I don't like how cookie cutter the homes are. To me it drains the life out of the development as much as the green and open space gives.

This is brilliant. The only issue I see are the service providers... They most likely don't live at such a place and cannot afford to do so. The people who make this place what it is, are the ones that make "the rest" of the world unsustainable.

Meanwhile UAE is one of the main contributors in the war in Yemen which is has displaced more then 15+ million civilians and responsible for more then 85,000 deaths caused by famine (Most of which are children under the age of 12) and that number is one a daily rise. And yet here we are praising them for such ingenuity and sustainability for climate change .. God bless us all.

they have to start somewhere. Instead of shooting down the good with the bad, go put down the bad on the ones that say its not happening. the things you have said have importance, but not here. They are unrelated to the video.

Dude wtf you need to tell your guests not to be smacking while they speak. It's very unnecessary and inconsiderate. I and many others are wearing EARphones and this is inexcusable for supposedly professional content.

Random question, but does anyone know what accent that is that the guy explaining the city has?
Jono Trewin (7 days ago)
Who works in the different facilities there though? Labour laws in the UAE are pretty poor if I recall correctly, and I have a feeling that the workers aren't given as chic accommodation as the people who end up living there. This is obviously just conjecture, but I find it strange that you didn't feel the need to ask about it. Any REAL sustainable city would have to make sure that all its workers are able to profit from the welfare that the city supposedly produces.

That's the quality content I pay my internet provider for. It gives hope for humanity. Being from India dealing with normal problems like traffic and overpopulation is an enormous task but it sure sparks a desire. We can deal with housing crisis and environmental degradation at same time. Enormous amount of land can be used for afforestation but lays waste. Moving together to the avert the crisis and doing to your part for the environment is the way to go! Use the capitalism to fight the decay of environment because elon musk can't take us to Mars that soon.

You would probably be fined for creating such city in Australia, the Liberal government believe burning coal is the way to go and global warming is a lie.

Doesn't have any appreciable animal production or plants...needs to be a factor of 400-500% more to be sustainable. It's a good start...but, it's only a start.

This is a pipe dream and not economically viable, perhaps only in small countries that are in a literal desert wasteland that also happen to be sitting on top of one of the largest oil reserves in the world. *Tell them to stop exporting their oil worldwide if they’re serious about stopping climate change. Haha. :,)*
Michal Viktorin (13 days ago)
You live in a desert. Adobe/Cob contains 70% of sand, and you did not build with it. And you call it sustainable you fucking hypocrites? Also all buildings are the same. No personality, just ,,modern bullshit" Basically this is stealing sustainable technologies to create dull crap,
Is it ironically mostly funded from oil profits?

Niels van den Kieboom (11 days ago)
That's actually a lot less than I expected. With current housing prices in the Netherlands averaging $350,000+ a fully sustainable villa without service costs in a community like this seems to be well worth the price.

totally not sustainable, they said sustainable in terms of energy. Well done you did that right you got it. but in terms of uses of plastic, metals, stone etc it is totally not sustainable. Those resources will never come back, wood for example will. it's a step in the right way, but not quit there yet, well designed city though
Shanky Sakhare (16 days ago)
Alright what's the price? How can you miss something so important for such a great city
