This city is being designed to scrub the air of pollution

Liuzhou Forest City

China's approach to reversing climate change is firm and innovative.

Covering an area of approximately 175 hectares along the Liuzhou River, Forest City will have offices, houses, hotels, hospitals, and schools that will be entirely covered by a total of 40,000 trees and close to a million plants, including over 100 species. It will be connected to the main city of Liuzhou by a rail line with electrical train cars.

This will also be the first urban settlement in China that will be able to "generate its own renewable energy, increase biodiversity, and effectively reduce urban air pollution—which is a major challenge for present-day China."
