Dr. Lin Zhang published a translated book issued by Peking University Press

Dr. Lin Zhang has published a translated book by Peking University Press. The title of this book is “Greening Economy, Graying Society” (中文名:綠化經濟與構建可持續社會).

This book, written by Lucas Bretschger from ETH Zurich, aims to address the challenges to achieving a sustainable future, to provide novel ideas to rethink current positions, in particular on the costs of abandoning a fossil-based economy and on the benefits of developing a green economy. This translated book is a pioneer work to discuss the potential challenges and policy design for the construction of sustainable society. One highlight of this book is that mathematical equations and models are avoided, it is therefore a useful input for general public and policy making.
