Creating 100 Thousand Million Sustainable Cities

Next year, 100 Thousand Million aims to start building the world’s first truly sustainable city in northern Chile, and several countries are keen to see the next project’s on their soil, said founders Alberto Scherb and Jaime Alvarez.

“In the short term, our vision or mission is to create a lifestyle that is truly human-centred, nature-focused, and of course, sustainable,” Scherb said. 

“So in a matter of two or three generations, people won’t have to have conversations like the ones we have today: How do we become sustainable? What it is to be sustainable? What’s the 1.5 lifestyle?” 

Learn more about:

  • How the first sustainable city is being born
  • What are the next countries after Chile?
  • Process of permits and studies to build a town from scratch
  • Role of web3 in building a new tow
  • Where will the people come from?

“The critical aspect of building the city is not building the city, but building the community. And that is really hard and exciting because nobody has the answer. And it’s not like somebody’s trying to be the cowboy and save the day. Because there is no cowboy for this one,” Scherb said.

In the NatureBacked podcast of Single.Earth, we talk with investors and entrepreneurs about their vision of the new green world.
