Gardens on rooftops

When you think about the corona virus, Wuhan would probably come to your mind instantly. Wuhan was the epic center of the COVID 19, and it was absolutely, nightmarish.

Fifteen months has passed in a blink of an eye, and now Wuhan city is on the fast trajectory of a full economic recovery. To everyone’s surprise, Wuhan has planted dozens of majestic gardens on rooftops to produce fresh and organic vegetables as well as to reduce the carbon usage of the city. Also, the famous Wuhan cheery blossom came out early this year, which represents that this year is off with a good start.

Moreover, China is making a much bigger move on rebuilding in a green manner: building one of the largest green projects the world has ever seen.

The project I mentioned earlier is located in Shenzhen, a famous metropolis in Southern China. Tencent, one of the largest internet service companies globally, has broken ground on creating a futuristic city that can accommodate about 80,000 people, and the city occupies 2 square kilometers or three quarters of a square mile, which is similar in shape and size to the midtown Manhattan in America. An abundance of green space, especially in its ethnic minority neighborhoods, futuristic designs include flowing terraces and solar panels on each rooftop to reduce carbon emission, all play a vital role in shaping up the foundation of this city.

Designed as a research and development center for artificial intelligence, new energy, and industry automation, the city will become a large testing field for driverless cars, trucks powered by hydrogen cells, cutting-edge applications of industrial robots and online healthcare.

To summarize, I reckon that China is determined to build a green world. The future looks bright. With this city, an improved society will be constructed and an eco-friendly metropolitan will be in prospect.
