北欧绿色邮报网报道(记者陈雪霏)– 瑞典沃尔沃环境奖基金会30日宣布,澳大利亚华人白雪梅教授荣获2018沃尔沃环境奖。

此前,中国的环境科学家秦大河曾经获此殊荣。

白雪梅教授中国出生,日本长大,后来到澳大利亚当教授,她对环境问题,尤其是城市环境问题很有建树,非常关注。

白教授是全球城市可持续研究的最活跃的领导者之一,其研究成果在东亚得到实际应用。她的先锋跨学科研究聚焦在社会,生态和经济驱动,城市影响,城市可持续过度的科学政策等。她介绍了城市可持续试验概念,实现了研究成果的应用。她的研究成果都有可行性,对政策制定有借鉴作用,她的研究在山东日照太阳能的应用和中国西部地区可持续城市化战略都得到应用。

白教授是研究成果得到应用的最杰出例证。

Professor Xuemei Bai is one of the most active global thought leaders in urban sustainability research, working across scales and tackling both theoretical and applied challenges with a focus on urban development in East Asia. Her pioneering inter- and trans-disciplinary research focuses on understanding the complexity of the social, ecological and economic drivers and impacts of urbanization, and the science and policy of urban sustainability transitions. She and co-authors introduced the concept of urban sustainability experiments – novel practices with significant potential to change the status quo. Most of Professor Bai’s research has clear policy implications, spanning from identifying and testing local solutions to addressing broader national and global policy challenges. Direct impacts of her research include the proliferation of solar energy use in Rizhao City, as well as the development of sustainable urbanization strategies in the western region of China and the regeneration of forests using native tree species at mining sites in Japan. She has contributed to regional and international science initiatives including the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, IPCC and Future Earth, in particular leading the development of the Urban-Knowledge Action Network.

Professor Bai’s work is an outstanding example of the application of research to policy and practice. She is a most deserving recipient of the Volvo Environment Prize in 2018.
