The six core themes of the Sustainable Design China Summit
The main themes of the event will be Designing a Sustainable World, Circular Design Thinking, Climate Changes Everything, On the Path to Net Zero, Nature By Design, Building Sustainability & Green Design. Therefore, the Summit invites us to reflect on current and future environmental challenges and find innovative solutions to address the negative impacts of climate change.
In fact, creating new urban landscapes requires a full integration between architecture, natural landscape, urban planning, policy and culture. Only in this way, the cities and communities of the future will be able to meet all the needs of current and future generations, while protecting the environment and promoting regenerative cycles.
Focus on sustainable materials
Chris Lefteri, a world-renowned material design expert, will present “Material Installation” at the Sustainable Design China Summit, a curatorial exhibition of more than 50 different innovative materials.
