As the second largest economy in the world, China has positioned itself as a forerunner of sustainable development, guided by the national development vision known as “Ecological Civilization”. In 2015, the Chinese Government expressed its interest in joining PAGE, starting at the provincial level in Jiangsu, the second-richest province in the country. Characterized by a dense network of rivers, lakes and waterways, Jiangsu has a strong resource base but is faced with several challenges, including high population density, environmental degradation and a reliance on heavy industry. China joined PAGE in 2015 and is now a Graduating Country.
The partnership in Jiangsu Province has contributed to progress towards SDG 4 (Quality Education), 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy), 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure), 12 (Sustainable Consumption and Production), 13 (Climate Action) and 17 (Partnerships for Goals).
PAGE China celebrates its graduation ceremony. On this occasion, PAGE China holds the PAGE Academy in collaboration with Tongji University to build capacity for green economic development, provide the knowledge and skills needed to promote environmentally sustainable and socially inclusive economies, and enhance international exchange. The online academy takes place from 14 to 18 November 2022.
