Tsinghua University, in collaboration with Synocus Group, the City of Espoo and Aalto University, has, over the last few years, developed a network for a World Alliance for Low Carbon Cities. The WALCC enables cities, companies and research institutes to efficiently exchange ideas and collaborate in demonstration projects relating to new innovative technologies addressing climate change and energy consumption.

The ambition is to build the WALCC into a global professional community uniting leading experts with a strong interest in furthering the development of low-carbon cities.

The WALCC facilitates communication and cooperation, and provides a platform both for demonstration projects and academic research relating to low-carbon cities. Cities, corporations and researchers work together to come up with more environmentally friendly solutions for urban transportation, renewable resources, green buildings and urban planning.
