The Future is Sustainable Cities

In the 21st century, the world is becoming increasingly urbanised. Since 2007, 3.5 billion people live in cities, and this figure is projected to reach 5 billion by 2030. This means that up to 60 per cent of the world’s population will live in cities. And by 2050, more than two-thirds of the world’s population will live in cities. Being centres of economic growth, providing about 60% of global GDP, cities already account for about 70% of global carbon emissions and more than 60% of resource use. That is why Sustainable Development Goal 11 – “Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable” – is so important and relevant. Achieving Goal 11 sets specific goals for Governments: to ensure universal access to safe and affordable housing, safe, affordable and environmentally sustainable transport and safe and inclusive green spaces and the creation of comfortable and attractive environments in cities for life and work.

Glorifying the Poet-Thinker of Global Scale

A poem by the National Leader of the Turkmen people, Chairman of the Halk Maslahaty of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov “Magymguly Pyragy’s Storehouse of Wisdom” and its bright artistic and literary presentation at the solemn conference held at Magtymguly National Music and Drama Theatre of Turkmenistan and other similar events gave another powerful impetus to the truly nationwide celebration of the 300th birth anniversary of the wonderful classical poet, thinker and master of words. In this regard, it would be appropriate to note that human memory judges any great poet primarily by the extent to which he was able to reflect in his work the cherished thoughts and aspirations of the people, their interests, strivings, dreams and the extent to which he was able to embody the main problems of the time in his works. It is in this context that we need to consider the new work of our Hero-Arkadag, which is a kind of ode dedicated to Magtymguly Pyragy, whose poetry for the Turkmen people is the highest revelation of eternal spiritual and moral values, firmly ingrained in their consciousness as a guideline.
