Education, culture, and health care are well developed. Vocational training is available for migrant workers, and their children can access education opportunities as well. Culture: With the increase of migrant experts and workers, the Qingpu community has learnt to be an open society accommodating other cultural values. Environment: Measures have been taken to promote clean production. For example, assessing investment projects, rational land use, pollution control, energy efficiency, waste recycling, reduced reliance on non-renewable resources such as water, land and energy, to mention a few. System: Developed guidelines for the new watertown to enhance the scenery and reputation of the city. Some useful lessons have been learned. Special emphasis should be put in the planning process phase by putting in more resources (time, money, human resources) before any definite action is taken. Respecting history goes harmoniously with the people-oriented principle. What matters is taking the people-oriented principle as the foundation and enhancing people’s involvement, thus highlighting the cultural aspects. When constructing cities, opportunities for future development should be envisioned.

Special emphasis should be placed on environmental management, which subsequently contributes to sustainable development. This initiative has been recognized in international forums, competitions, magazines, and in government circles. In the 2006 Global Architecture Summit, a seminar was held with the theme “Ancient China Facing the New World - Qingpu Practice”, in which the projects of the top-grade new residential area, Cambrige Watertown, and the office building of the Association of Private Enterprises won the recognition of the magazines, Business Weekly and Architecture Record. They were highly honoured for their emphasis on the modernized local culture and as the best residential area and the best commercial building. Other significant activities in Qingpu have also aroused universal interest such as the Qingpu Masters’ Forum with the theme of creativity and responsibility, the activity called “A Yellow Box in Qingpu: Contemporary Art and Architecture in a Chinese Space”, the third China International Press Photo Competition. Qingpu has gained extensive support in policy influence from the municipal government of Shanghai on environmental issues. Qingpu has been one of the first beneficiaries of the renovation plan on the protection of blocks and buildings in historic and cultural reserves. Qingpu’s design guideline of a new watertown has gained support from the Shanghai municipal government. New Qingpu Practice exhibits innovation. It held an international designing competition and a forum for studying new-watertown-style urban planning processes. In 2007, it committed a research project to Tongji University to study regulations on new- watertown-style urban planning to avoid the mistake of “1000 cities in same pattern” that can easily occur in rapid urbanization processes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
