A campaign was launched on Thursday by four universities in the Yangtze River Delta to collate best practices in urban management for the region.

The event was launched by Zhejiang University, Nanjing University, University of Science and Technology of China and Shanghai Jiao Tong University, after Shanghai and Zhejiang, Jiatsu and Anhui Provinces decided to cooperate to achieve higher-quality integrated development last month.

The campaign is expected to promote mutual learning and exchange on urban management among cities in the region and promote successful practices in the area and nationwide.

“We will focus on key problems and major challenges in all areas related to the lives of citizens to explore ways to improve urban management,” said Wu Jiannan, executive vice dean of the China Institute of Urban Governance, an institute at Shanghai Jiao Tong University that will be in charge of organizing the event.

The practices must have been running for at least one year with topics that include but are not limited to urban planning, traffic management, environment management, community governance, public services, smart cities and the coordination between cities.

Government institutions or social organizations that participate in urban management can all submit materials about their successful practices to the organizing committee from now until the end of August.
