Is dense living part of sustainability?



  1. 0 Votes

    Dense population centers are more able to take advantage of economies of scale and for that reason use less energy and resources per capita than do less dense population areas. Since the efficient use of energy and resources is a part of sustainability, it can be said that dense living is also a part of sustainability.

    Sometimes. Dense populations can share more things which can make a dense society more sustainable. For example, they can use public transportation.

    No not exactly. But dense living is an important issue with the growing population. High residential developments take up a small footprint, and keep a urban area tight cutting down on transportation distances. Dense living can lead to sustainability, but it could also be considered unsustainable if issues with materials and maintenance occurred.
