By 2050, 75% of the world’s population will live in cities. ‘Ecopolis’ is a virtual city created to represent the future of urban living. If we continue to live as we do now, the Ecopolis you see at the beginning of each programme will make the mega-cities of Blade Runner look like a Disney paradise. But we have seen the future, and it is not dreary and most certainty not all bad news. From the leading edge of now, projecting into the future, this series will show how we can make Ecopolis live up to its name by turning Ecopolis into a carbon-neutral city. Visionaries, designs, techniques, processes, new technologies, new disciplines, surprise finds and prototypes will be revealed to show how Ecopolis can be a beacon for the green cities of the future.  As well as touring the world’s most important projects and picking the most revolutionary brains – this six part series will tell the solutions to our future city in a world headed for urban carbon carnage.
