Future of the Environment

This former Parisian wasteland is now an 'eco-neighbourhood'

Trees and plants frame a building in the "eco-neighbourhood", Clichy-Batignolles, one of several new ecological housing developments with low energy use and carbon emissions, in Paris, France, October 22, 2015. The city of Paris presented its latest "eco-neighbourhood" ahead of the COP21, the World Climate Summit from November 30 to December 11, 2015.   REUTERS/Benoit Tessier
