Enhancing Sustainability Sparking Economic Vitality
Protecting Cultural Heritage Promoting Social Equity
... in the world's fastest-growing cities?
Air and water quality. Resource consumption. Energy and transportation infrastructure. As the planet's urban population mushrooms to 6 billion out of 9 billion people by 2050, the sustainable development of cities—responsible for up to 70% of carbon emissions today—presents a major challenge.
We know you're up to the task!
This fall, join a unique experience studying urbanization and the environment, with a focus on China, home to some of the world's fastest-growing cities. Students will have a unique opportunity to collaborate with faculty and students from Tsinghua University in Beijing on urban sustainability projects.
