Vancouver, British Columbia

Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency features Vancouver, a busy seaport on the west coast of British Columbia.

Vancouver is one of Canada’s most densely populated and ethnically diverse cities, and is also known for being eco-friendly. 

Officials have developed a plan to make Vancouver “the greenest city in the world.” The project involves improving air quality, constructing greener buildings, reducing CO2 emissions, and reducing traffic by promoting cycling, walking, and public transportation use.

Vancouver is already one of the most sustainable cities on the planet, with 95 percent of its electricity coming from renewable energy sources.
