The theme of Building Livable  cities 2010 is EcoCities - Driving India towards the age of sustainability which will explore strategies that can make Indian cities environmentally sustainable. Today, cities occupy about 2% of the world's surface area and have a disproportionately large impact on the earth’s ecology. According to the United Nations, cities are responsible for 75% of global energy consumption and 80% of greenhouse gas emissions.  Therefore, a large part of the solution towards solving the crisis of Climate Change lies in solving the crisis of Cities. This series of multi city forums is aimed at creating a blueprint of a sustainable future.
