Regenerative Urban Development in China

Transforming cities into regenerative systems is a big challenge. This is especially true in China, where most of the world’s biggest cities are faced with severe pollution problems and the issues of urbanisation, sustainable resource use and environmental protection are at the top of the political agenda. The 4th Future of Cities Forum in Munich in 2014 showed that the concept of regenerative cities can be a path-breaking solution for China considering its rapid urbanisation. In June 2015 the WFC Commission on Climate and Energy launched a 5-year programme on Regenerative Urban Development in China with an office in Beijing.
