The last shall be first and the first shall be last, it’s our time to catch up because we’re definitely lagging behind.
First Smart Forrest City in Mexico will be 100% food and energy self-sufficient
DEVELOPING GLOBAL CITIES WITH A SOCIAL CONSCIENCE
We must wake up from our success syndrome stupor. We are drunk at the wheal from our past breakthroughs.
Western Civilisation doesn’t automatically have the entitlement of leading the world, it must continue to earn that right.
SMART FORREST CITY ‘Now that’s innovating’
Of course a place like Mexico may lead the new world in creating perhaps the most sustainable urban living, it’s called adapting.
Necessity is the mother of invention” is an English-language proverb. It means, roughly, that the primary driving force for most new inventions is a need.
Another proverb In ancient times from a wise teacher ‘The last shall be first and the first shall be last’ ~ Jesus
Perhaps the arrogance of our prolonged amazing Western Civilisation with all its trappings is what stops us from renewal. Meanwhile, what we once damned as third world and backward states take the lead.
Change is inevitable, I hope we as a western society make the necessary changes sooner rather than later and continue to be the leading edge in creating global cities with a social conscience.
