Abstract:

At the end of 2020, the German government announced a massive €4 billion budget to support research projects addressing global warming and sustainability under its FONA (Forschung für Nachhaltigkeit) strategy over the coming five years. China’s new five-year plan, released this March, confirms the country’s commitment to sustainability including peaking carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 and achieving carbon neutrality by 2060.

Covid-19 has demonstrated that scientific collaboration plays a critical role in tackling complex challenges. In the same vein, environmental problems require a diversity of solutions based on scientific insights. Guided by its Sustainability Action Plan: A Global ZJU for Social Good (Z4G), Zhejiang University is working to enhance sustainability-related education, research and operations through a variety of programmes and activities, such as the inaugural Sino-German Sustainable Development Forum (SGF).
