A crash course in changing the world.
Since natural disaster is a real issue where im from in 2020 we would have a temporary shelter for people to live in when their homes are destroyed so that we dont have a crisis like the one in Louisiana when they had so many people living in the superdome,

Wow it has been a busy time for Christchurch! Because of the earthquakes so much has changed. But thankfully we have retained our nickname 'the garden city'. Builders are just finishing up the last of the houses and the plans for the new eco-friendly shopping centre and libraries are halfway through development. It is so great to see my city becoming normal again. The shipping container shopping mall has remained as a memorial and the new cathdrael looks amazing despite the critics.

Wolfsburg made a lot of efforts to become a more friendly and green city.
There have been new Car and Bike Sharing Systems established.
One Big difference is the Volkswagen has placed lots of solar cells on their factory roof.

In 2020, I think Christchurch will have many more parks, and 'green' areas. There will be a lot of eco-friendly buildings, and all of Christchurch will be more eco-friendly. All structures will be earthquake-strengthened and we will be prepared in the case of another earthquake. Christchurch has had many rebuilds and new structures built in the community, although Christchurch is not fully rebuilt yet. There will be nearly no pollution in the wh*** Canterbury region.

In the next ten years I believe there will be a lot of new parks and recreational spaces. Hopefully there will be a lot of Earthquake-built buildings and a lot more shipping containers as shops. A lot of the houses should be repaired and upgraded to be more safe.

I believe that the fastest way of sharing information is to spread the news among big TV screens at crowded places. TV screens can always attract a person's attention and even if someone can't see the screen, he will still be able to hear the audio from the news. I can imagine everyone having an internet enabled mobile phone in 8 years. But it's not always possible to walk while looking at your phone, this could be dangerous when you're crossing a street as well. TV screens can bring the…Continue

Unfortunately google maps wasn't functioning properly so I went through old posts and found one that suited me, In Chch, after the earthquake, it has made us stronger and more well-off as a community. We have learnt from bad things, and know 2020, we have our old lives back. We are more grateful for our city and what we have compared to some people.Some of our historical buildings will still be standing, some reaching over 200 years old. We will have a many modern and old fashioned…Continue

The perfect example for a promising city concept is Freiburg im Breisgau. Freiburg, known as Germany's Green City, initiated loads of eco-friendly projects and concepts in response to global warming and the shortage of natural resources, which could be adopted by Nuremberg. In the course of eco-friendly city development Freiburg launched the project SolarRegion Freiburg, which provides residents with information about the solar suitability of their roofs. Furthermore city's traffic concept…Continue

Most residential areas have vegetation covered roofs and are facilitated with solar panel. Because of the convenience of shopping and going to work, people ride bikes more often than driving cars. Light-rail system snakes through the wh*** city. Waste…

As you can see on this map, in 2020 the area around "Neunstetten" - my hometown - has changed a lot. I would like to explain you the main changes:
First of all, all electricity is gained from renewable energy ressources, located next to the town. You can find two solar…Continue

In Christchurch in 2020 there will be many new modern buildings after the earthquake, and they will probably just be finishing the rebuild. It will look very different and modern, there will be a new cathedral, new houses, but the people will most likely be the same. People will be able to get used to the new city and start living normal lives again without construction and hopefully without earthquakes or aftershocks going on. It will be a wh*** diffrernt city with different buildings and…Continue

I think this objective doesn’t make so much sense, because in such a small period of time (8 years) it is hardly possible that cities changes so much. In 8 years the number of inhabitants does not inrease noticeable. Quite the contrary will happen in Hannover: The Bertelsmann Stiftung predicted that the number of inhabitants will increase during the year 2006 and 2025 about 0,2 percent. (…Continue

As one can see, three giant plots of farmland have been created in the outlying areas to help support the possible food problems, and a disaster response building has been constructed in the event of a powerful typhoon or something similar, to help aid regular response teams. This would…Continue

The yellow house is where I live right now. We are surrounded by trees that were planted by my parents, grandparents, and other relatives. They were able to build a haven for us by helping one another.
On the other side of the road (represented by the yellow box) is a large area with…Continue
