The issues seem to happen in following years are haze and pollution in some cities. As seeing in scenic pictures, we may see the vertical forests located in Nanjing, China. In amazing images, these forest may produce 132 pounds (i.e. 60 kg) of oxygen each day. So, with this amount they may take your breath away as you see them.
In images of scenery, these vertical forest called the Nanjing Towers, and they may be complete in 2018. With the real scene, they may be Asia’s first ever vertical forests. Via designing and initiating by Italian architect Stefano Boeri, every tower may stand 656 feet and 354 feet in place. In seeing scenery photos, they may really house more than 1,000 trees and roughly 2,500 shrubs from 23 different local species. In such scenery pictures, the taller tower may consist of offices, a museum, a green architecture school and a rooftop club. As for the smaller tower, they may house a rooftop pool and a 247-room Hyatt hotel. In short, balconies may provide visitors stunning views of the dizzying vertical forests in order to help regenerate local biodiversity. More reading.

The towers in Nanjing create vertical forests with housing 2,500 shrubs and over 1,000 trees
Today, all experts, developers and decision makers seem to recognize that environment issues really happen in the earth. The developers try to engage decision makers and encourage all stakeholders to develop economy via converting jungles into urban and cities. They might think that forest provided less all services and not so much Gross National Product (GDP), so to be converted the forest into urban and cities it may get much GDP via several services from the urban and cities. For example, it may build all infrastructures i.e. skyscrapers, house, restaurants, streets, administrative office, hospital, school, universities etc. In fact, it may absorb million and million dollars from tax paying of all companies, consumers and other relevant stakeholders in private sectors. If we consider something about financial analysis, yes it may be acceptable, but if you say about economic or environment analysis, sometimes it may be not real in place. Some developers seem to try to forget and/or to hide some costs in their analysis in order to push their plan to achieve the goal of development accordingly. Thus, the development sometimes does not follow rule and/or environment impact assessment and in turn it provides some consequences as seen at present time.
There are 23 different tree varieties that may get about 132 pounds (60kg) of oxygen every day
As seen in following images in place, we may have seen some environment lovers, who try to escape from urban and city’s environment issues, have included many trees into the building and apartments in order that the buildings and apartments may maintain micro climate in region. This micro climate may protect micro climate change, and it induces to be warm for all days for tourists who want and desire to visit this city. Via recognizing environment issues, some developers may accept to include forest planting in and out buildings and apartments; these benefits residents and other home and office stays in quite long hours. The tree may exchange between oxygen and carbon dioxide and then it may clear pollution and haze in the air. Note that tree may contribute to minimize using power such as air conditioner, fans and other ventilators to minimize temperature affected from the sun. Truly, tree may provide important for human beings and regional position in not only breath, but also clear all air pollution. Indeed, now development model initiates to new era in combining cities and urban and forest into one model so that it may be ensured to reach sustainable development of the city and urban for new generation.
The towers in Nanjing were instigated by Italian architect Stefano Boeri and may be expected to finish in 2018
Ideally, the development model is truly focused on both urban/city development and environment improvement. That is, both development and environment lovers may be consensus on future development; this may draw a check and balance between future urban/city and forest assumed as city jungles. This may also draw all of people to preserve and protect existing forest in jungle rather than to cut forest and then re-plant it. Note that if we leave existing tree to grow itself in the jungle, it may be cheaper than we grow it. Therefore, the development model and the forest preservation and protection should be simultaneously in order to ensure what planet exists and what new generation continues to live on earth as enjoyed.
These buildings were planned by the architect for Lausanne as similar as Switzerland
Now, many developers seem to turn to concentrate on sustainable city and urban. And sometimes it is called as eco-city that has been designed with reflection of environmental impact. That is, it is habituated by citizen and people devoted on the way to minimization of required inputs such as energy, water, and food, and waste output of heat. This may be included in air pollution carbon dioxide, methane, and water pollution. In other words, there may still remain no entirely approved upon definition towards what a sustainable city should be or fully settled upon pattern for what mechanisms should be counted in. Largely, development experts consent that a sustainable city or eco-city should be run into the requirement of the present with no scarifying the capability of future peers to meet their own requirements. Beyond, the ambiguity in this idea hints to a great deal of variation in positions of how cities implement their endeavors to be sustainable. Thus, the sustainable city and urban may become a tool for minimizing an impact on climate change, air pollution, water pollution and settling what the cities and urban faced previously. Wikipedia
Idyllically, a sustainable city makes a continuing way to life across the four domains related to ecology, economies, politics, and culture. Yet, negligibly a sustainable city should initially be able to nurse itself by means of renewable reliance on the adjacent country. Next, it should be able to power itself using renewable sources of energy. The bottom of this is to instigate the smallest possible ecological footprint, and to create the lowest quantity of pollution imaginable, to resourcefully use land namely compost used materials, recycle it or change waste to energy. Thus, the city’s inclusive contribution to climate change may be minimized so long as such practices are abided by. In estimate, over 50 percent of the world’s population currently lives in cities and urban areas. In fact, these huge communities give both trials and opportunities for environmental conscious developers, and accordingly there are dissimilar gains to extra defining and working towards the goals of sustainable cities. Note that humans are social beings and flourish in urban spaces that nurture social links; this may be an effort of humans in combating environment issues in the cities and urban. In short, a move to denser, urban living could give a channel for social interaction and circumstances under which humans may thrive. Wikipedia
Two vertical forests, Bosco Verticale, were built in Milan, Italy
Currently, cities and urban areas become a key to social development and economic opulence. That is, it means that most of developers seem to try to focus on urban areas due to most of global population and capital goods. Within urbanization, globalization, and climate change, they may be actively interacting in a way which is unparalleled, that is, urban service systems have been becoming more and more interlinks. Accordingly, the session discovers the challenges and innovative methods thru multiple scopes of sustainability at the city level. For instance, it shows economic, environmental and social and how the cities give to shared prosperity. The session may exemplify trials provided by cities in terms of access to jobs, services, total economic improvements, and total positive influences on the environments. In final, the city may walk around the significant contests and trade-off which politicians meet with ensuring that the advantages are socially comprehensive, resilient, and then these advantages are attained in an ecologically sustainable method.
