第一届城市可持续科学高级讲座

延期举行 中国·上海

城市是人类文明的标志、社会经济发展的主要引擎和人口分布的聚居中心。当前,全球正在经历着快速的城市化过程,至2017年共有54.8%的人口居住在城市,预计到2092年,这一比例将达到99.9%。大规模、快速的城市化进程,在推动社会经济发展的同时,也带来了一系列负面效应,引发了日益突出的以交通拥堵、环境污染和公共服务供给不足为特征的“城市病”,给城市乃至区域的可持续发展带来巨大挑战。因此,如何降低和减缓城市化带来的负面效应,建设可持续城市,成为了当前人类社会共同面临的一大挑战。城市可持续科学将为解决这一挑战提供重要的理论指导和方法支撑。

为促进城市可持续科学在中国的发展,助力解决日益凸显的“城市病”,推动建设美丽中国和美丽城市,澳门银河yh678拟举办“城市可持续科学高级讲座系列(Urban Sustainability Science Symposium Series, U4S)”,邀请城市可持续科学相关领域的国内外知名学者,就学科理论发展动向、方法探索和实践应用等进行系统介绍。“城市可持续科学高级讲座系列”旨在为从事城市环境、社会和经济可持续发展的研究者和实践者(尤其是青年学者、学生)提供一个高层次学术交流平台。讲座论题涵盖城市弹性、城市生态系统服务、可持续城市建筑、可持续城市和城市可持续性评估等方面。

第一届城市可持续科学高级讲座将在澳门银河yh678举办,主题是“城市可持续科学:基于全球的透视”。时间待定。

会议语言:第一天英文,第二天中文

The 1st Urban Sustainability Science Symposium

Postpone · Shanghai · CHINA

Urban sustainability refers to an adaptive process of facilitating and maintaining a virtuous cycle between ecosystem services and human wellbeing through concerted ecological, economic, and social actions in response to changes within and beyond the urban landscape. Urban sustainability is one of the most pressing and challenging tasks facing humanity today because cities are the primary sources of major environmental problems, the centers of economic and social developments, and home to more than half of the world population. To meet the challenge of urban sustainability, cities need to be studies as spatially extended, complex adaptive systems with interdisciplinary approaches integrating ecological, economic, social, and design/planning sciences. Urban sustainability science is the science and practice of linking spatial patterns, biodiversity, ecosystem function, ecosystem services, and human wellbeing in urban landscapes under uncertainties arising from internal feedbacks and external disturbances.

     The goal of the USSS is to promote the theoretical development and the place-based applications of urban sustainability science, with a focus on cities from China and elsewhere in the world. Key topics include urban resilience, urban ecosystem services, sustainable urban architecture, sustainable cities, and urban sustainability assessment. Each USSS invites leading scientists in ecology, geography, environmental economics, and sustainability science, from around the world, to provide in-depth discussions on these key topics.  The USSS is intended to be an important platform to promote urban sustainability science in China and beyond.

Working language: English for the first day, Chinese for the second day
