Large metropolises are home to many of the development and environmental challenges facing the world’s population today. To address these challenges, Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan province, launched its Park City Initiative in 2017. Rather than simply creating green spaces in the urban setting, the idea behind Park City Initiative is to build a ‘city within a park’, generating a new type of development path which bridges the people, city, industry and nature.
A park city explores a future version of cities which highlight a people-centered green development path. With a five-tier structure composed of industrial functional areas, urban areas, park communities, park blocks, picturesque village settings, and building on the thousands of miles of greenway, the city looks into creating scenes of sports, culture, entertainment, and develop the new economy and business models.
The two-session webinar organised by Metropolis Learning Hub Chengdu, with the support of Chengdu Institute of Planning and Design, with a focus on urban planning will offer a chance for urban planners, city managers and urban development experts to meet and exchange views on planning for sustainable development and the vision of future cities.
This will be an interactive two-session webinar following a problem-driven and solution-oriented methodology. Participants will be able to exchange their best practices and work out creative solutions.
