A writer for the Huffington Post, Josh Schrei, had a great idea to rebuild Haiti with all of the elements of healthy living they could possibly stand. All of the things we hear about in the news about living a green healthy life, from our cleaning products to our energy sources, could be adapted to Haiti as they look at rebuilding the entire city of Port Au Prince. He gave the examples of: “Massive solar energy infrastructure, wind generation, communal and vertical farming,green public transportation, a reduction in automobile use, and, most importantly, a full geo-structural re-imagining of the entire cityscape that reduces sprawl, maximizes resources, saves energy, and allows for energy independence. This is what the cities of the future will look like.”
The Haitian people really do have the opporutnity now to have the best possible living accommodations where the weather benefits them. They can be rebuilt in a way that the rains could fuel them as well as feed their newly developed crops. They need to rebuild smart and the Green way is the wave of all of our futures.
