A China Story II: A New Model of Urbanization
07 July, 2014
Entitled “A China Story II: New Pathways to Urbanization”, this forum will tell how the world’s largest developing country prepares itself for the new tide of urbanization, the considerations it has to weigh, and the good practices that it seeks to learn.
The story of modern China will comprise a series of presentations to drive home the reality that sustainable growth involves a delicate balancing act that takes into account multiple competing forces and needs. It will serve as a platform to depict the overall approach to sustainable development of China in the past thirty years as well as the new administration’s dedication on building an eco-civilization which is centered around economically viable, socially responsible, environmentally friendly, culturally inclusive and politically harmonious cities.
Above all, this forum represents the dedication and effort of this Chinese think-tank, the China Energy Fund Committee, to provide a novel foundation and a renewed perspective for all stakeholders to move forward with the preparations for a post-2015 UN development agenda that is responsive to both today’s and tomorrow’s global challenges, and therefore worthy of the aspirations of all countries and peoples for a better future.
