在加入卡迪夫大学之前,他曾在中国城市规划设计研究院工作。他既有学术研究也有城乡发展和规划政策制定的专业经验。近年来,于立主持和/或参与的主要研究项目内容包括了智慧\低碳生态城市建设,乡村振兴与发展,以及一些城市生态转型研究等。他的一些研究项目在实践中对政策产生了重大影响,如“乡村振兴路线和机制”、“中国低碳生态城市指标体系”、“中国低碳生态城市发展指南”和“推进生态城市政策进入主流实践——中国低碳城市政策、融资和实施策略的行动研究”,等。

 生态城市硕士专业的简单介绍

生态城市不仅仅是关于生态环境,更是对过去100多年城市发展模式和规划方法的反思。目前世界各国正在推动和实施的应对气候变化,节能减排,低碳绿色发展,可持续发展的具体措施都是生态城市关注和研究的内容,例如其中包括绿色建筑政策,可持续的排水系统(在中国称为“海绵城市”),绿色交通,紧凑型城市,智慧发展等等。生态城市专业是对探索可持续发展三个组成部分:经济,社会和环境一体化、协调发展和规划的模式。另外这个专业不仅仅关注城市问题,也涉及城乡协调发展和乡村可持续发展的问题。因为城市的发展离不开乡村。

攻读生态城市硕士专业对于个人未来的发展也有积极的意义。世界各国的政府和机构都在探索可持续发展的规划和发展;在中国也一样。中国政府提出的“生态文明建设”,为生态城市专业的学生创造了用武之地。
