    Description:

    国际在线专稿(记者 刘澄圆)2013中欧城市博览会已经于11月23日闭幕。在本届博览会上,一个重要的内容是建设绿色生态城市。现场,许多欧洲展台都以此为主题,展示绿色创新技术成果或前沿绿色产品,更有展台开展双语绿色生态理念的宣讲和互动。中国处于一个快速发展变化的时期,在发展过程中城市生态问题日益突出,而欧洲在建设绿色生态城市方面有许多先进的地方可以为我们所借鉴。

    参加本届博览会的有CIVITAS国际组织的负责人。这个组织致力于维护欧洲城市的生机和可持续发展,该组织的负责人现场展示了该组织工作的相关资料并为记者做了详尽介绍,在这个过程中,记者发现,欧洲在建设绿色生态城市方面有许多切实可行的具体办法——特别是绿色出行方面,正为一些中国城市所借鉴,这些深入到生活方方面面的方案和措施既有效解决了题,又体现了城市建设中不可或缺的人文精神。
