Sustainable City | Fully Charged

14144 ratings | 419338 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

Wow . All they need now is Stepford Wives. Didn't see any homeless or drug addicts. Didn't see many people at all. Must be just for the selected few. That's not solving much of the world's problem at all.

Dubai is extremely expensive for 2nd or 3rd world country rich people such as Turkish, eastern European country citizens. Only wealthy british , EU country citizens who have companies with good net incomes for decades. 5000 USD/month rent is normal for Dubai apartments to rent for 150 sq meters of apartment, otherwise you will live with crooks in Dubai. French quarter is the most affordable place with monthly rents of 1500USD-2500USD for 100 sq meters apartment, district to live in Dubai. Sharjah is better for middle income people to sustain UAE lifestyle with 700USD-1200 USD per month rental prices of 100 sq meters of 3+1 apartment in Sharjah.

Great video but missed the mark with price. How much to buy and/or price to rent? What we're cost of utilities if any? Now over a year later, what is the cost difference?

Can we actually grow collectively as humans if parts of the world are so different? (in terms of sustainability). There are countries where their history is so prevalent that it affects their daily life, which ultimately affects their sustainability. For example, I just came back from studying abroad from Rome and the city is filled with historical landmarks. I imagine it'd be incredibly hard for the Italian culture to let go of their beautifully rich history in order to live a more sustainable life, even if they know that it's better for them and the world.

It is beautiful, sadly I don't see any "free" society.. For example there are no adult males and females sharing the community pool. The mall won't thrive because there is NO ALCHOL. Therefore there is NO PARTY. Concequently there is NO REASON for folks to go there and congregate. Remember one of the hottest places on earth is using sewage in a "GLORIFIED SWAMP COOLER" to cool everything... Sorry, but I predict a MAJOR FAIL HERE!

it has been proven in the past that when arquitecht try to design big population centers they usually fail... their is a human/social and economic factor that plays into the development of cities and urban areas that no architect can foresee... example? Brazilia just to mention one.

when on earth India will be like this??? *so far what has been our most strongest asset is gonna turn to destroy us thanks to climate change....yeah the 3rd pole of the world ie the HinduKush-Himalayan range where the most ice is deposited outside the two poles.* But its a fact that there has been 60% meltdown in those glaciers.....and yeah so once we thumped our chest that the great himalayas that gives us 10 major rivers, houses 3-4ecological hotspots will initially drown half of the India and then as the kill us all with starvation (dried sources of river, unirrigatable land)......... *But the freaking rich of the nation are still digging the mountains and selling the sand (sand/iron ore/stones/....) to China.*
I'm impressed that they tried to think about the economic sustainability as well. I designed an economic mixed use community where one would purchase a unit much like one would purchase a home but that home would come with a shop space. Each tenant would have what amounts to a condo, two parking spaces for electric vehicles and either an office space or a commercial space. The idea being that if the living space doesn't make sense economically, it's NEVER going to work ecologically.

That's the thing about these fast talking, charming hosts:- they are selling something, some idea; they try sell you all the good sounding parts, leaving you no room to bring up issues on the downsides. Is it still cool in January? Why not visit during the summer when it gets to 45°C? Do they have a battery system to store the excess electricity for use at night? If they don't, they are still burning fossil fuels for their energy at night. They're not really being water sustainable, like Israel and Singapore, or Windhoek. They don't drink or shower with their treated waste water do they? I bet their water source still comes from the desalination plants by the sea. It's like they partially treated all those grey water, but then nobody wants to use it. So what do they do with it instead? Create gardens, lawns, fruit orchards, build expensive bio-domes that requires big energy hungry fans, so they can have a reason to say that they are re-using waste water and showcase it as such. Even the Native Americans knew about the North and South facing slopes for shade in the summer and getting heat in the winter. That's also the premise on growing grapes for wine. What other passive cooling technologies did they adapt for their buildings? How revolutionary is this this place truely? Or is it just some marketing ploy to attract those who barely know about real sustainability, and are desperate to relieve their conscience on the negative impact that they have on the world. You need to be genuine when carrying out projects like these. It has to be about real sustainability, and not about being a Feel Good endeavor. Necessity is the mother of invention, because people are forced to adapt. Hence places like Singapore and Israel. But places like the U.A.E has too much money, they can just buy their way through hardship, while building more swimming pools and water fountains in the middle of the desert.

This is great but I'd rather live somewhere that felt like it were more connected with nature. For someone who would rather live ecofriendly but prefers city settings, this would be fantastic. I hope, for our earth, that our future will look like this in every city.
