Thank you for submitting your proposal for the Smart Zero Carbon Cities Challenge. I think you address a really interesting issue and you explain well what an Eco-City is, what its benefits are, and what are the main fields of action to build these cities.
In order to make your proposal stronger, I'd suggest you to propose a more specific project about a development of one specific eco-city for example, or tackle one specific aspect of an eco-city to work on or develop into a concrete project.
Good luck with your proposal,
Looking forward to seeing the next version.

I was wondering if you had time to take a look at the comments I've sent you regarding your proposal? There is still time until the end of the challenge, if you were planning on doing some changes or modify anything!
If so, would it be possible to tell me what you have changed, so we can keep track of the evolution of your project?
Don't hesitate if you have any questions.

Hi Naresh! Very interesting proposal and I definitely agree ecocities are a great strategy for future urban areas. Similar to Alexandra, did you have a particular city in mind to target as your pilot or is there a city that you think has achieved the status as an ecocity already that you would add to? I saw you already sited EcoCity Builders in your references, also have a look at http://www.ecocityworldsummit.com/ for some inspiration as well! Best of luck!
