How to Design an EcoCity: An Interactive Dinner Presentation
Wednesday, January 4, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PST)
Palo Alto, CA
While US legislators are busy arguing about wether or not the EPA has the constitutional right to regulate air pollution, a massive ecological design experiment is underway place across the Pacific. For China, the worlds most highly populated country and heavily industrialized economy, the stakes are high to develop and implement an integrated sustainability framework for their cities.
Dr. James Caldwell, has spent the past year consulting to the sustainability planners of the city of Nansha, China on exactly this topic. At this dinner he’ll share the story of working with the urban planners of Nansha to develop a Green Specification System for the city.
He will compare Nansha with several other eco-city developments in China where he has worked with planners and reveal the insights gained from co-organizing and co-hosting a Chinese Mayoral Delegation that came to the Bay Area to compare Eco-City development efforts here with their own in China.
