Chinese American Parent-Student Council  and China Resource-Based City Development Association Jointly Organize The Resource-Based City Development Forum in Beijing, China

March 2016- On March 12, 2016,  The Resource-Based City Development Forum was jointly organized in Beijing, China, with the China Resource-Based City Development Association, providing a blueprint and guidance for the transforming resource-dependent cities in China. The forum's theme was to discuss key ways to achieve successful economic and environmental transformation and sustainable development in these unique cities, thus changing its overall direction and the vitality of its people.

 

The transformation of a resource-dependent city can occur through the following measures:

 

1. Changing the past ways of development to address the new needs of the city while comprehensively considering urban future energy and carbon saving; 

 

2. Strengthening the natural defense system, including the ecosystems of forests and water;

 

3. Introducing new capital and investment while advancing technological research.

 

The Chinese American Parent-Student Council and the China Resource-Based City Development Association also signed a memorandum for understanding (MOU) during the forum to further engage and provide assistance and consultation in transforming resource-dependent cities in China.
