2:00pm - 2:00pm CST
(UTC +8hrs)

This is a salon event about a green future for China, and more specifically, for Guangzhou. We will be having four live speakers plus TEDTalk videos about green economics and alternative economics at the event.

Topics we will explore in this salon:

Is electric car possible for Guangzhou?
How could everyday folks be part of the low carbon bandwagan?
Can business be part of the solution, rather than the problem, of environment issues?
Can we have buildings that are up to green standards for everybody?

Local visionaries on these issues and topics will be joined by leaders from across disciplines to share a half-day brain SPA at the recently opened Guangdong Museum.
