Sino-German City Lab

Urban Regeneration Perspectives for Chinese Cities

Welcome to the Sino-German City Lab!

The world population is growing – resources on Earth are not. Thus, it is up to us to come up with strategies how to build more resource-efficient, climate-friendly and liveable neighbourhoods. Unused or underdeveloped urban spaces pose a great potential for this challenge – but it takes expertise and careful planning to make the most of it.  German and Chinese partners have it all: The expertise, the technology and the common ground of 40 plus years of collaboration. Let’s come together to create eco-friendly and liveable neighbourhoods!

Below you will find videos and podcasts on different aspects and perspectives on the opportunities and challenges of urban renewal projects in Chinese cities. Watch and listen to them whenever it suits you best (on demand)!
