      About

       The theme of Building Livable  cities 2010 is EcoCities - Driving
      India towards the age of sustainability which will explore strategies that can
      make Indian cities environmentally sustainable. Today, cities occupy about 2%
      of the world's surface area and have a disproportionately large impact on the
      earth’s ecology. According to the United Nations, cities are responsible for
      75% of global energy consumption and 80% of greenhouse gas emissions. 
      Therefore, a large part of the solution towards solving the crisis of Climate
      Change lies in solving the crisis of Cities. This series of multi city forums
      is aimed at creating a blueprint of a sustainable future.
