PhD Research Thesis Topic

  • Low-carbon city construction and community participation: an empirical investigation in X district of Qingdao city
    Brief Abstract: Mainland China’s urbanization process is being retarded by environmental issues. Embedded in such social context, the development pattern of ‘low-carbon city’ highlighting ‘sustainability’ has been in the limelight of public opinion. The thesis aims to empirically investigate the current situation of community participation in Qingdao by: examining its demonstration district—Chengyang, exploring factors and mechanisms related to this participation, and identifying its successful experiences as well as weaknesses. Assisted by the method of logistic regression, different effect levels of factors can be found in diverse circumstances. Overall, it is expected to provide evaluative insights about the broader impacts of low-carbon urban policies and lifestyles in Chinese cities.
