On March 3 2021, World Wildlife Day celebrates forest-based livelihoods and seeks to promote forest and forest wildlife management models and practices that accommodate both human well-being and the long-term conservation of forests, forest-dwelling species of wild fauna and flora and the ecosystems they sustain, and promote the value of traditional practices and knowledge that contribute to establishing a more sustainable relationship with these crucial natural systems.
A sustainable city is one designed to address social, environmental and economic impact through urban planning and city management. Many sustainable initiatives are achieved by building eco-friendly alternatives into city infrastructure, such as adopting walk and bike lanes. Regulations and fines can also achieve change: waste removal orders have proven to reduce landfill waste.
While finding ways to help the planet is essential to sustainability, reducing costs and creating a vibrant culture for citizens are equally important. Through planned infrastructure, public green spaces, smart waste removal and more, cities can leave behind a net zero footprint for a more sustainable world.
