Academicians and scholars gathered in Zhejiang to discuss future urban development-The first "International Conference on Urban Renewal and Future Urban Development under the Dual Carbon Goals" was held in Anji, Zhejiang

From July 2023 to 7, 28, the first International Conference on Urban Renewal and Future Urban Development under the Dual Carbon Goals was successfully held in Anji, Zhejiang Province. Academician Ou Jinping, Academician Wang Fuming, Academician Wang Mingyang, Academician Zhang Zongliang, Academician Zhu Hehua, Academician Teng Jinguang of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Academician Zhou Yingxin of the Singapore Academy of Engineering, and seven academicians gathered in Zhejiang to "take the pulse of the diagnosis" for future urban development. The conference focused on the innovative theme of "Future Cities - Intrinsically Safe Cities - Elevated Cities", aiming to explore how the new round of urban development can meet the core issues such as the "dual carbon path" of green development and urban renewal, promote and promote the construction of resilient cities and smart cities with high levels of disaster prevention and mitigation, build carbon-neutral cities with low carbon emissions and strong ecological and artificial carbon sinks in industry, buildings and transportation, establish intrinsically safe cities that solve the problem of "syndrome" in urban spatial development, and strengthen international cooperation. Jointly promote the development of the world's future cities.

At the same time, the conference attracted more than 20 national high-level experts and scholars, including the Minister of Education Jiang Scholar Distinguished Professor and National Jieqing, as well as about 200 experts, scholars and engineers and technicians from domestic and foreign universities, scientific research institutes, industry enterprises to attend and pay attention.

Professor Tang Chunan, President of Zhejiang University of Science and Technology's Future City Research Institute, delivered a speech in which he welcomed experts, scholars, and industry representatives from home and abroad, and briefly introduced the school's development. He stated that the forum will provide a good platform for the industry to exchange ideas and collide wisdom, as well as a good opportunity for the school to learn from advanced achievements.

Creating a beautiful living environment is the eternal pursuit of human beings. The construction industry should not be part of the problem, but part of the solution. Only by starting from system-wide innovation such as planning, design, construction, maintenance and use can we truly and effectively respond to various crises in human society and achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. After the keynote speech, Professor Ding Xiaoli, Institute of Land and Spatial Development, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Professor Zhang Limin, Deputy Dean of the Smart City Research Institute of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Dr. Guan Zheng, State Key Laboratory of Smart City Internet of Things at the University of Macau, Wu Wei, Founding Dean of the Graduate School of Public Administration of Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, Wu Dengguo, Deputy Dean of the Urban Construction Institute of PowerChina East China Survey, Design and Research Institute, Professor Li Fengyu, Deputy Dean of the Urban Design Innovation Institute of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, and Shi Xiaodong, Secretary of the Party Committee of Beijing Urban Planning and Design Institute, Professor Li Zao, Vice Chairman of the Education Branch of the Architectural Society of China and Vice President of Anhui Jianzhu University, Professor Shen Jinghua of Soochow University, Li Jianping, Chief Engineer of PowerChina Urban Planning and Design Research Institute, Professor Liu Songyu, Executive Vice Dean of the Future Underground Space Research Institute of Southeast University, Professor Ning Dezhi, Director of the State Key Laboratory of Coastal and Offshore Engineering of Dalian University of Technology, and other 20 experts and scholars focused on how to solve traffic congestion, increase traffic flow on a large scale, and completely solve parking problems. Invite reports on key issues such as the development direction, hot spots and difficulties in urban renewal and future urban development, such as greatly reducing traffic accidents, smoothing traffic around the clock, realizing low-cost laying of urban pipelines, realizing sponge function, intelligent logistics system in urban areas, implementing automatic driving, reducing underground space excavation to protect the ecological environment, realizing urban construction revolution, reducing urban operation and maintenance costs, improving living environment and improving quality of life. The academic atmosphere of the forum was warm, and the participants had in-depth exchanges to discuss new theories, new methods and new achievements, which are of positive significance for expanding the research horizon in the field of low-carbon development and promoting the development of scientific theories and production practices in the fields related to urban renewal and future urban development.
