CPN首届中国城市交通国际年会开幕致词

阿黛尔.诺德.桑多斯(Adèle Naudé Santos),麻省理工学院建筑与规划学院院长,建筑与城市规划教授

我代表麻省理工学院,并作为建筑与规划学院院长,热烈欢迎大家出席“中国发展与规划国际论坛(CPN)第四届年会”,暨“首届中国城市交通国际年会”。

中国发展与规划国际论坛(China Planning Network, CPN)建立伊始,麻省理工学院就成为其最重要的支持机构之一,我感到非常荣幸。很多学生和教授们为论坛的良好发展作出了巨大的贡献,他们中大部分来自我院的都市研究与规划系。今年,我们有更多的院系参与进来,包括多媒体实验室、土木工程系、以及环境与能源中心。麻省理工学院一向重视CPN所组织的历届会议,并将一如既往的支持CPN的所有活动。

麻省理工学院致力于解决全球性的难题,中国当前面临着新的挑战,如机动车保有率高速增长、污染状况加剧、城市交通在建构可持续环境中的重要意义等。像往常一样,本届年会将为东西方的专家学者、业内人士提供一个交流的平台,以实现经验交流,共同探讨城市规划研究相关问题。

回归本次会议的主题,人口以前所未有的规模和复杂性向城市聚集,导致全球范围内的城市化浪潮,城市内部,以及城市间的人口流动经济形态、环境、能源可持续性、人类健康、生活质量等社会因素都具有深远的影响。

虽然都市的全球化趋势存在很多挑战,但中国的城市化也同时为新政策的实施、新技术的应用提供了前所未有的机遇。

通过大会三天的对话与交流,我们将提出交通研究技术与政策的前沿解决方案,并深入探讨技术与政策会对城市规划、生活质量、能源消耗、环境造成什么样的影响。

在这里,我想衷心感谢北京国际国际会议中心和新华社,本届年会的成功举办离不开它们的努力。同样感谢建设部及清华大学的同仁们。最后,我想感谢中国发展与规划国际论坛(CPN)的执委:赵锦华、郭明、郭湛,他们的热情和毅力使我们能齐聚北京,探讨中国的未来发展。短短几天的会议能为我们提供交流的机会,但是最重要的是如何将研究转化为实践,并解决现实领域的问题。麻省理工学院作为世界领军研究机构,将一如既往的关注中国所面临的问题,并衷心希望能参与中国未来的实践进程。

谢谢各位!

 

 

On Behalf of MIT and as the Dean of the School of Architecture and Planning, I’m pleased to welcome you to the 4th Conference of China Planning Network, the Urban Transportation Congress.

I’m proud of MIT has been the core part of the China Planning Network from the beginning, some entrepreneurial students and faculty have put a lot of energy into this, most of them come from the Department of Urban Studies and Planning of my school. This year we also have faculty from the Media Lab, part of my school as well, Civil Engineering and Lab of Environment and Energy. MIT’s participation is always been enormous of this Congress and we continue to do so.

MIT focuses on solving the world’s great problems, and I think the deputy changing development context in China. The rise of automobile ownership, the levels of pollution, and the vital role that can be played by urban transportation in building sustainable environments, is certainly one of these challenges. As in the past, this year’s Congress will serve as a platform to bring together Eastern and Western academic experts and related disciplines to urban planning research and our experience on the ground.

Certainly as has been stated several times this morning, I think we already at the very began as the Conference, it’s more than words population congregate to urban area is of unprecedented scale and complexity -- the rise of the mega city, how people move within and between these glomerations has enormous implication for long-term economic viability, environmental impact, energy sustainability, human health on the large scale, and quality of life of our communities.

While this is a critical issue for city’s globaling, China’s explosive urban growth definitely offers an unprecedented opportunity for implementing innovative policies, you are already doing that; taking technologically advances, I think some of this are taking place.

Through the 3 days of dialogue and exchange, we will present with cutting-edge thinking on transportation research technology and policy, also dealing with issues of how these affect the planning of urban areas, life style, energy consumption and the environment.

I want to have particular thanks to 2 organizations of purpose to this: the International Conference Center for Science and Technology, and Xinhua News Agency that really helped us to make this possible. Also thanks to the Ministry of Construction, to our friends of Tsinghua University, with whom we collaborate in many things. And finally I do want to give particular thanks to the Executive Commissioners of CPN: Zhao Jinhua, Guo Zhan and Guo Ming, this would never happen without their enormous energy and enthusiasm, supported by faculty too. Finally I want to say there is only one hour into this Congress, but it seems there’s much agreement on the issues we simply to speak the same language, but apply researches really needed. And as an institution, we dedicate our enthusiasm for the subject matter we care about of the planning in China, and we would certainly like to be part of any future application.

Thank you!
