in Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates.
The Masdar City is a city planning project committed to zero carbon, zero waste and other environmentally friendly goals. WWF and BioRegional have endorsed Masdar City as an official One Planet Living Community.
This city is designed to be totally self-efficient, relying entirely on solar energy and other renewable energy sources, with a sustainable, zero-carbon, zero-waste ecology. The first phase of this project is scheduled to be complete by 2015.
Some people reaction to this project is that it will become the ultimate gated community for the rich.
