Sustainable Australia Two of the world s most sustainable cities are in Australia. Canberra, considered the world s most sustainable city, has solar energy and wind farms as main energy sources. Besides this, it has an excellent public transport service that runs on clean energy and lets people leave cars at home. Also, it ensures that 97% of their residents have Internet access to make Canberra a connected city. Brisbane also has a strict programme to protect native plants and wildlife, creating a perfect balance between nature and inhabited areas. By 2031, 40% of mainland Brisbane will be natural habitat and carbon emissions from energy, waste and transport will be reduced by about 50%. 44 3 SDG 11 - SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES 4 Leggi il testo, poi con la classe discutete i punti indicati di seguito.

Canberra WRITING Sustainable Transport In the 2030 Agenda, sustainable transport is fundamental across several goals and targets. Cities should promote sustainable and inclusive transport systems by using public, non-motorised transport, new technologies (smart buses) and sustainable urban models (for example compact cities where you can walk or bike a short distance to work instead of driving). The transport sector will play a particularly important role in the achievement of the Paris Agreement , which is an international treaty on climate change. It is proved that a quarter of global gas emissions come from transport and if no actions are taken soon, these emissions will keep growing in the future.
