Low-carbon experts and companies from all over the country discussed the road to low-carbon development focusing on “carbon peaking, carbon neutrality, and regional economic transformation and upgrading”.
Jiang Bixin, Vice Chairman of the Constitution and Law Committee of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, Han Jinfeng, Vice Chairman of the Shandong Provincial Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, Huang Jianzhong, Chairman of the China Electronics Energy Conservation Technology Association, and Song Yongxiang, Deputy Secretary of the Binzhou Municipal Party Committee and Mayor Song Yongxiang, attended the meeting. Zhao Zhongxiu, President of SDUFE, attended the forum and delivered a keynote report entitled “Striving toDevelop Low-Carbon Education andCollaborationto Achieve Double Carbon Goals”.
Zhao Zhongxiu pointed out in the report that the foundation of low-carbon development lies in education, especially higher education, which is of great significance to the realization of the dual-carbon goal.There are two ways for higher education to help achieve the dual-carbon goal. First, to break the boundaries of disciplines that is, to integrate the wisdom of various disciplines, and to promote the generation of new knowledge and ideas across disciplines.Second, to take serving society and benefiting the world as our own responsibility; take the organic linkage between theory and practice as realizing the goal, and promote the cultivation of talents for green and low-carbon development.
Zhao Zhongxiu also introduced the original intention of Shandong University of Finance and Economics (SDUFE) to establish China International Low Carbon College and the current achievements. He pointed out that the China International Low-Carbon Academy will carry out in-depth scientific research, talent training, and social work in the field of climate change.This is combined with the development characteristics and requirements of the new era, and actively exploring a green and low-carbon development model that meets China’s national conditions, while providing the support of talents and think tanks for the realization of the goal “30.60.”
