Growing Cities – A Vegi-Tecture
According to the United Nations Population Fund, more than half of the world’s population was living in towns and cities in 2008. They predict that almost 5 billion will live in cities by 2030. It is the largest urban growth period in history with Africa and Asia being the greatest centres of urban swell.
Across Australia more households have chosen a “concrete change”, to live in a city apartment, as opposed to a “tree” or “sea” change.
Although it might seem practical and trendy there are some serious side effects of city living such as being disconnected from nature; and the mere act of walking down a busy city street can fracture our concentration. This stands in stark contrast to the effect of walking in the quiet of parks and bush land.
