IREA has signed a MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) with the UNIVERSITY OF JINGDEZHEN, to promote student exchanges and cooperation between teachers from French Universities and the UNIVERSITY OF JINGDEZHEN.

IREA wishes, for the implementation of this MOU, to establish a long-term relationship with URBA 2000 and ECO ORIGIN, in agreement with the UNIVERSITY OF RENNES, so as to form a multidisciplinary team that can supervise student upgrading coming from the UNIVERSITY OF JINGDEZHEN, and then to follow courses at UNIVERSITY OF RENNES. Inversely, the students of the Universities of Rennes and Brittany will discover the Chinese teaching in Jingdezhen.

The fisrt visit to Rennes of the students of Jingdezhen is the first step to create this links. IREA will ensure the establishment of a training with teachers selected by ECOORIGIN and URBA 2000 as part of their cooperation. This training will use the "Sustainable Learning" system created by URBA 2000.

Sustainable Cities and Communities

A sustainable city is one that respects sustainable development priorities from their social, economic and environmental perspective, and that allows its inhabitants to live in good conditions and in harmony with their surrounding nature.

Nowadays half of humanity – 3.5 billion people – live in cities. By 2030, almost 60% of the world’s population will live in urban areas. In the next few decades 95% of this urban expansion will take place in the developing world. 828 million people live in slums today, with this figure constantly increasing. The world’s cities occupy just 3% of the earth’s land, but account for 60-80% of its energy consumption and for more than 70% of its carbon emissions.
