THE GREEN DRAGON (USA, 2008, 35 min.)
Washington, D.C. Premiere Chinese cities struggle every day with smog, pollution and traffic. With more than half of the world’s construction now taking place in China, the country’s central government has launched a wave of new policies to enforce energy efficiency in buildings. China’s Green Building Industry codes are nearing completion with more eco-cities on the horizon. New economic models of sustainable infrastructure are a hot topic and pilot projects are being planned across the country. Despite its current environmental challenges, China possesses an ancient culture deeply connected to the paradigms of sustainability. Is China set to embrace the global green building movement or even leapfrog the rest of the world in terms of what it really means? Produced by Caroline Harrison, The Green Dragon Media Project.
Introduced by Jennifer L. Turner, Director, China Environment Forum, Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. Discussion with filmmaker Caroline Harrison follows screening.
