  1. Towards an Evergreen Future Zhao, Jianfu UNEP-Tongji Institute for Environment and Sustainable Development (IESD) Tongji College of Environmental Science and Engineering (CESE)

  2. PART IThe New Institute (IESD) is backed up with CESE, Tongji University: • Prior to 1979: Section of Water Supply and Sewage, Department of Civil Engineering • 1979: Department of Environmental Engineering • 1989: School of Environmental Engineering • 1998: College of Environmental Science and Engineering • 2002: UNEP-Tongji Institute for Environment and Sustainable Development

  3. Teaching and Research Development End of pipe pol. control Eco-city planning and Management Life-cycle, SEA Enviro-Infomatics Water resource, wetland Waste reduction & reuse Industrial transfer of Envir. Technologies Ocean ecology End of pipe pol. control (air, water, solid, noise) Acid rain Envir. Monitoring Envir. Impact Assess. End of pipe pol. control Environmental planning and Management Waste reduction & reuse Industrial transfer of Envir. Technologies 2002 1998 Water supply and Sewage 1989 Before 1979

  4. With CESE: • State Key Lab for Pollution Control and Resource Reuse • National Engineering Center for Urban Pollution Control • Training Center for Environmental Officials • Research Institute for Environmental Science and Engineering. • China Station of BNSICNET (Information Network of Environmental Sciences and Technology).

  5. A Platform for UNEP-Tongji IESD Material Science and Engineerinhg UNEP-Tongji Institute for Environment and Sustainable Development Tongji University Automotive Engineering College of Environmental Science and Engineering Ocean and Earth Science Traffic and Transportation Economy and Management Architecture and Urban Planning Civil Engineering

  6. PART IIThe One-Year Progress • Agreement signed on May 9, 2002 • New building is to be completed • An Implementation Plan • Contact with universities and research institutes • Contact with enterprises • Research progress

  7. Agreement signed on May 9, 2002

  8. New building is to be completed in April, 2004 College of Environmental Science and Engineering

  9. An Implementation Plan • Objectives • Teaching Programs • Research Projects • Administration Structure • Contact with universities, research institutes and enterprises • Financial Issues

  10. Contact With Universities and Research Institutes • School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, Yale University • Nan Yang University of Technology • New South Walse University • Griffith University • Wollonggong University • United Nations University • Juelich Research Center of Germany

  11. Contact With Enterprises • Henkel Detergents (China) (Committed to support IESD) • Bayer Chemicals (Sydney Forum:”ECO-INNOVATE 03 – young innovators creating a sustainable future”) • Louisiana-Pacific Corporation (Suggesting an Industry-University degree program, and an EMS workshop in 2004)

  12. Other contacts • Lecturing by Professor from Harvard • Distant video conferences with US Engineers and scholars(cyclic economy, ecocity planning)

  13. Research Progress • Three Gorges Environmental Studies (Cooperation wit Juelich Research Center of Germany) • East China Eco-City Planning (Economically most rapid development, facing challenges of drastic urbanization) • Innovative Technologies (State-level key projects (“863” Projects): Drinking water safety technology; Water environment quality amend technology and comprehensive demonstration (Wuhan) Eco-landfill of municipal solid wastes)

  14. Students doing eco-survey Floating wastes near the dam Preparing for a survey Sewage directly enters the river

  17. Part IIIAn Outlook • Teaching Programs • Research Activities • A Regional University Consortium • An Industry – IESD Collaboration

  18. Teaching Programs • Name: Environmental Science • Degree pursuing and training programs • Degrees to offer: Batchlor, Master, and Ph.D • Students: Asia and Pacific, and Developing world • Core courses: to emphasize the balance among society, economy, and environment

  19. Research Aspects • Three Gorges environmental studies • Eco-city planning and management • Regional scale environmental problems (Asia Brown Cloud, …) • Ocean ecology • Social-ecological aspects in rapid developing area • Industry ecology, cyclic economy

  20. Cooperation • With universities (A regional university consortium) • With enterprises (An industry – IESD collaboration) --- To be discussed at this Meeting

  21. Thank you !
