As cities continue to expand and an estimated 60% of the world population is expected to live in them by 2030, it is becoming more and more apparent that our current building practices are putting a strain on the environment. Traditional building construction, with materials like concrete and steel, can cause significant ecological damage due to high carbon emissions from energy-intensive production processes as well as water pollution caused by runoff. As we look towards the future of urban development, it is essential that we take steps to reduce the environmental impact of our buildings and create sustainable solutions for cities.
One such solution is taking shape in an incredible documentary recently released called “Buildings Don’t Have To Suck: A Guide to Greener Construction” which aims to provide a comprehensive overview of sustainable building practices. Through interviews with experts from around the world, this documentary explores topics such as green architecture, renewable energy, efficient waste management systems and air quality improvement tactics that can help lead us towards a cleaner tomorrow. It also looks at ways we can change our everyday habits – such as reducing car use or investing in low-flow fixtures – to make a difference in our urban environments.
If you care about protecting the environment then this documentary is definitely worth watching. It provides clear explanations of why traditional building methods are damaging to the planet and how we can work together to create greener cities for future generations.
