Summary 內容: 中國正進行不可逆轉的城鎮化實驗,城市群政策將為中國空間帶來翻天覆地的轉變。這短短40年間,大量人口帶着城市夢離開農村湧進城市。然而,這些高速擴張的城市裏,有城市規劃和可持續發展嗎?離鄉別井為中國繁榮作出貢獻的外來人口,真的可以融入城市生活嗎?

China is a laboratory for urban planning on a massive scale, with its ongoing urbanisation combining mega-cities into mega-regions. Over the past four decades, hundreds of millions of people have left farms and rural villages and flocked to the cities for work.
Are there any urban planning and sustainable development in these rapidly growing cities? For those who left countryside and have fuelled the nation’s specular economic boom, how’s their integration into urban life?
This forum is the fourth session of the series ‘Welcome to China’.
