Academic Committee of China Eco-City Academy Appointed
08 Apr, 2016

30 March 2016, Beijing-The 28-member Academic Committee of China Eco-City Academy (CECA) was appointed today during the 12th International Conference on Green and Energy-efficient Building & New Technologies and Products Expo.

Mr. Sun Anjun, Director-General of the Department of Urban-Rural Planning of MoHURD, said that cities are becoming increasingly important in China’s economic and social development. Building eco-cities is in line with the requirements of the economic new normal and is essential to achieving the China dream.

Congratulating the committee’s appointment, Mr. Zhang Zhenshan, Representative of UN Habitat for China, said that China has made great achievements in sustainable development. He pointed out that the international community is also making efforts to pursue sustainable urbanization pathways, referring to the Sustainable Development Goals relating to cities as well as Habitat III to be held this year.

Mr. Frederic Asseline, Team Leader of Europe-China Eco-Cities Link, expressed hope that EC-Link could become a bridge between CECA and European experience and expertise in eco-city development.

CECA was formally established in November 2015 and registered under the State Administration for Industry and Commerce, which is itself under the State Council. CECA is primarily a research and knowledge centre, with the objective of becoming a world-class player in generating best practices for sustainable urban development. Later in 2016, a China Eco City Alliance will be registered under the Ministry of Civil Affairs of China, and the Alliance will have the status of a Non-Governmental Organization.

CECA Academic Committee consists of prominent experts in the field of ecological cities, including Jiang Yi, Vice Dean of School of Architecture at Tsinghua University, Wu Zhiqiang, Vice President of Tongji University and Qu Jiuhui, Academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering.
