      Hey Corry! That looks like a great campus to be on to actually live, breathe, and learn sustainable practices. I would be interested if any other universities have adopted your campuses practices. What is your best "green" tip that you could offer a fellow peer like me?

    Perhaps addressing issues with buildings that have already been built would be more proactive. For example, proper insulation, less air conditioning, PV cells on roofs of all homes (especially in sunny countries), etc.

    Agree with the comment below. But also, I think we're kidding ourselves when we label things like Sky City and Great City as sustainable. Are these highly sustainable masterplans being built on greenfields site really good for the environment? What are the biodiversity impacts? Sure, the construction and operational aspects look enticing and maybe the alternatives (low-density sprawl on greenfields sites) are poor, but we're really just continuing to ignore the big issues. Population growth is out of control. Whether its for a super green city or a sprawling suburb, land consumption needs to be addressed.
