The Hub: green talks with the Mayors of Chengdu and Heidelberg



How do cities around the globe go about implementing a green, low-carbon and sustainable agenda? How can they harness each other's skills, knowledge and experience to bring about concrete and palpable results? In this special program of The Hub "Green Talks with Mayors," Wang Guan talks to Wang Zhihua, deputy Mayor of Chengdu, China and Eckart Würzner, LordMayor of Heidelberg, Germany, and delves into their green initiatives at a municipal level. Chengdu, the capital city of China's southwest Sichuan province, is known as a "park city" and has been piloting and launching schemes at community and grassroots levels in favor of recycling and decarbonization. A great example is Chengdu's iconic "sky garden" in Angong, an old community, that has attracted widespread attention with the greening of rooftops. And southwest Germany's Heidelberg's Mayor tells Wang Guan about his "passive housing project" aimed at decarbonizing his city by using energy more efficiently, thus making everyone's life more sustainable.
