 Songdo has been designed with sensors to monitor temperature,​ energy use and traffic flow. These sensors can alert to personal when bus is due and to local authority about any problem. A lot of these innovations are designed with the environment in mind - charging stations for electric cars, for example, or a water-recycling system that prevents clean drinking water being used to flush office toilets.The waste disposal system is also impressive because there are no rubbish trucks trawling the streets or vast bins dotted around blocks of flats. Instead, all household waste is sucked directly from individual kitchens through a vast underground network of tunnels, to waste processing centres, where it's automatically sorted, deodorised and treated to be kinder to the environment. In future, some of this household waste will be used to produce renewable energy. ​ Songdo has been designed with sensors to monitor temperature,​ energy use and traffic flow.

 +**4 EXAM QUESTIONS ​
 +**
 +
 +1. //How do you define sustainability in your own word?// ​
 +
 +It is important to learn to what extend people understand about the sustainability concept and what it means to them. Some people may define it based on economic, social or environmental dimension depended on their background.
 +
 +2. //​Technology facilitates people'​s decision or desire to change. However, how technology can trigger the change inside people or make people want to change ?// 
 +
 +In the chapter IT and personal change, the book mainly talk about how technology support people in changing behaviour. It seem like technology is used just as a tool to support. What if people themselves don’t have intention to change at all? Can technology make people change their mindset? ​
 +
 +3. //Should environmental learning be injected to formal or informal education to get more effective result? Why?//
 +
 +This question is to access people’s opinion on how do they think where they can learn the most about environment. It’s important to know whether traditional or formal education in class and the study through interest group or workshop will reach more people to concern about environment. ​
  
-**Groupwork**+4. //Should developed countries and developing countries have the same responsibility on the sustainability?​ Why or why not?//
  
-Chapter 7 : GreenIT and Personal Change+This is quite an opinion based question. However, it’s interesting to know how people from developing or developed countries think of the sustainability,​ how their countries should be responsible of the environmental issues or how much their countries have been doing for sustainability so far.
