America’s Eco-Cities: Sustainable Prisons of the Future

By 2030 it is expected that an estimated 4 billion people will live in eco-cities, which are controlled environments where sustainability mandates how much water, energy, food and production is allowed in urbanized areas.

Targets and restrictions will replace traditional living to keep the land used for habitat from becoming a wasteland and protect the surrounding wildlife.

Global research on renewable energy and clean technology in an international hub will collaborate to overcome human challenges as population becomes denser.

In eco-cities, private cars will be banned, forcing people to use high-speed mass transit, bicycles or simply walk to their destination. Narrower streets and huge walls to separate the eco-city from the surrounding wildlife preserves will aid in controlling the temperature of the city.

Several cities in America are transforming their existing urban cities into these eco-cities that are marketed as “laboratories of innovation and progress”.

In Osceola County, Central Florida, Anthony Pugliese, president and CEO of Pugliese Development Co (PDC) is building an eco-sustainable city called Destiny where the entire landscape will reduce on-site carbon emissions to zero. PDC has partnered with technology companies to mandate LED lighting, solar panels.
