China’s new urban agenda: an international dialogue on sustainable development

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article reviewpeer-review


Conference Report for China’s new urban agenda: an international dialogue on sustainable development. Organised by the Manchester Urban Institute of the University of Manchester, this four-day conference, held 31 October–3 November 2018, drew together over 100 delegates from the UK and Europe, China, Hong Kong, Australia, the USA and Chile. Noting how, with the publication of the National New Urbanisation Plan, China is reshaping its urban growth to a more human-centred and environmentally sustainable pathway, the conference provided a platform for both researchers and practitioners to consider how we can best learn from each other to address, amongst other issues, the challenges of sustainable development, and make a reality of Habitat III’s New Urban Agenda. Of the conference’s four days, the second and third were given over to parallel sessions, keynote speakers and plenary sessions, all of which were held in Manchester’s Museum of Science and Industry.
