Changsha Urban Construction Academician and Expert Workstation Established
The Changsha Urban Construction Academician and Expert Workstation was established on May 10. Nie Jianguo, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE) and director of the Academic Committee of Tsinghua University, was the first academician of the workstation. This workstation will provide high-end intellectual support for Changsha’s urban construction and high-quality development.
The “Urban Construction Lecture”: Urban Construction Sustainable Development Forum was held in Changsha on the same day. Ten experts, including Nie Jianguo; CAE Academician Chen Xiangsheng; and Zhang Zhenshan, director of the United Nations Human Settlements Programme China Project, spoke to the forum. Vice Mayor Liao Jianhua awarded plaque for the workstation and attended the forum.
As the workstation’s important activity, the “Urban Construction Lecture” aims to create a platform for technical exchanges on urban construction. It will organize more forums later, and become a regular academic exchange activity concerning Changsha’s urban construction.
This is the first year to give the “Urban Construction Lecture”. It was hosted by the Bureau of Housing and Urban-Rural Development of Changsha, with the theme of “Urban Construction Sustainable Development”. Academicians and experts put forward suggestions on urban sustainable development from the aspects of urban construction, living environment improvement, rail construction, underground space, urban renewal methods, facility maintenance and management, which are of great significance to build quality Changsha and promote its urban construction.
