This is the second international event organised in the context of the MEDIUM project. While research conducted in the context of the project focus primarily on the medium-sized cities Hangzhou, Zhuhai and Datong, the conference will consider urban China in its diversity, with a great variety of case studies including Beijing, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Tianjin, the region of the Taihu lake etc.
It will address the issue of sustainability from a broad perspective, tackling ageing housing, social inclusion, urban governance, environmental sustainability, participatory processes in urban planning, with a multi-disciplinary approach ranging from geography, political science, economy, sociology, computer science, environmental science etc.
Several members of Géographie-cités will participate to the conference; Natacha Aveline, scientific coordinator of the project, Denise Pumain, Nicolas Douay and Cinzia Losavio and Juste Raimbault, MEDIUM fellows.
The conference will take place in Guangzhou and is hosted by Sun Yat-sen University.
