During the past decades, urbanization in China have centered on land development through industrialization and investment, and largely ignored the prosperity and well-being of the people. Livable cities are not just the ones with magnificent buildings and infrastructure, but they are great places where people strive for and want to live. The inaugurated leaders have proposed a new model to actively and prudently enhance the quality of urbanization through compact, intelligent, and low-carbon development.
It symbolizes the departure from land-centered urban development to a form of people-oriented urbanization, as China’s Premier Li has advocated. Quality of life should be one of the key guides for the new model of urbanization. The new model offers a platform for planning researchers and practitioners to tackle urbanization challenges, such as social equity, environment, energy, ecological and historic preservation, affordable housing, and externalities of mega cities. Further, the people-oriented urbanization calls for public participation and stakeholder engagement in the planning process.
The 8th annual IACP Conference will bring together planners, designers, scholars, scientists, and government officials from China and all over the world to exchange ideas on the theme: Urban Regeneration: New Model and New Practice.
