Location and Regional Characteristics

Hangzhou, which is one of the cradles of Chinese Civilization and one of the most active centres of economic development in China, has a long history. The natural environment of Hangzhou includes rivers, streams, lakes and mountains. As the structure of populations transform and the development of urban culture diversifies, Hangzhou is an emerging international city now.

Hangzhou RCE is an open and parallel organisation with diverse participation. It integrates resources, knowledge, and experience from all members so that they can contribute to the efficient functioning of the RCE. Moreover, we plan to send out invitations to different social circles so that we are better able to collaborate on future projects. The RCE Committee and the Secretariat will be given responsibility for exploration, policy making, and coordination. These responsibilities will include exploring new resources, developing projects, seeking additional funding, and making policy. The organisation will also establish a transparent and trustworthy framework to ensure equality, fairness, diversity, and cooperation among all members of the RCE.


In the short term:
  1. Establishment of the RCE Committee and the Secretariat
  2. Creation of a RCE website
  3. Formation of an RCE organisation and management system, which develops current projects and launches new projects
In the long term:
  1. We will commit ourselves to curriculum development and professional training for sustainability education and to the promotion of environmental protection activities from nursery school through the university
  2. Aiming for equality in education, we pool our strengths to improve equity and foster sustainable development through various channels and methods within all sectors of the workforce
  3. To develop a sound, mature and sustainable development mechanism in order to maintain a stable and sustainable education system
