The Workshop is a non-profit university-government-private sector partnership based in Seattle to address the social and environmental challenges and opportunities facing urban growth in China and the U.S. The program has seed funding provided by the U.S. Department of Education through the University of Washington, in cooperation with the State of Washington, King County, and the City of Seattle.

The program introduces practical tools and policies for local sustainable development, as well as expert insight on fundamental differences in politics, social structures, law, and economics of urbanization in the two countries. Participants will have a unique opportunity to work together on solutions to actual development cases they bring to the exchange. Site visits to relevant projects in the Seattle region are also part of the program.

研讨会为非盈利性的研讨交流活动, 部分的经费由美国教育部赞助。 研讨会将介绍中美城乡可持续发展可操作性工具及相关政策,并由专家论述中美两国城市化政策、社会结构、法律及经济方面的异同。参与者将有特别的机会交流研讨不同的中美地方案例,寻求解答诸如“如何在利用法规的同时采取合作的形式来解决有关可持续发展要求?”等问题。目前, 没有其它任何项目能像此研讨会一样,将专业学习与相互交流相结合.
