Lessons Learned from Chinese Cities

Twenty students from the United States and China completed field site visits in six Chinese cities this summer to learn about an interdisciplinary approach to study cities, attend multiple field site visits, and complete a course project that was presented to officials of the City of Xiamen.

This experience was made possible from a $4.5 million Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE) grant award to Humphrey School Professor Anu Ramaswami from the National Science Foundation.

The results of this international, interdisciplinary lecture-fieldwork course that trains students to address the challenges of developing environmentally sustainable and healthy cities has been published in The Bridge.
