At the global ecological and energy center will be transformed Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates since at some time the first “green” city in the world will be there, Masdar City.

Masdar City is a project in Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates. Its core is a planned city, which is being built by the Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company, a subsidiary of Mubadala Development Company, with the majority of seed capital provided by the government of Abu Dhabi. Designed by the British architectural firm Foster and Partners and engineering and environmental consultancy Mott MacDonald, the city will rely entirely on solar energy and other renewable energy sources, with a sustainable,zero-carbonzero-waste ecology and will be a car free city. The city is being constructed 17 kilometres (11 mi) east-south-east of the city of Abu Dhabi, beside Abu Dhabi International Airport.

    Certainly a step forward in sustainable development. Fewer carbon emissions, passive solar design allowing for a great reduction on the dependence of fossil fuels. Something so essential that was left out though, was where, and how is food sourced to this city?
