Background:

Under the theme ”Systemic Transitions Towards Low-Carbon”, the forum addressed, through vibrant discussions, topics such as Systemic Architectures for Sustainable Urban Development (SASUI), smart mobility, revamping urban districts, industrial symbiosis, built environment,  Internet of Things, and green hospitals.

To create more opportunities for communication and cooperation among the member organizations, the Graduate School at Shenzhen, Tsinghua University together with the World Alliance for Low Carbon Cites (WALCC) decided to host an event titled “Shenzhen Low-carbon Building Seminar” to continue the dialogue under this specific topic.
