Cities, as the primary hubs for production, living, and consumption, play a crucial role in determining whether we can embark on a green, low-carbon, and circular development path to address the urgent challenges presented by global climate change.

The Sustainable Cities, a book by Steven Cohen and Dong Guo of Columbia University, outlines strategic goals for sustainable urban transformation aligned with global green trends. The book highlights the importance of sustainable urban construction and its potential to drive new economic changes.

Columbia Global Center Beijing is pleased to invite you to a panel discussion featuring Dong Guo, co-author of the book, and leading Chinese scholars to discuss green production and lifestyles in cities. Attendees will enjoy book giveaways and signings.
