    • Here's a walk and talk about that green and sustainability. Goes from 5–7pm and costs 200rmb if you register at publicwalks@shanghai-flaneur.com. Meeting point is the W+K office on Changle Lu/Wulumuqi Lu. Here's what the organizers say, "While levels of pollution, especially air pollution, are alarming, more and more people are getting engaged in environmental protection and taking action at their level, often within their own communities. What is the state of public engagement on green issues? How are grassroots movements in China evolving? What are current models and forms of engagement? What is the space given to public participation? On this special GREEN WALK, we will discuss these and further questions together with LIU Yi, a co-founder of a rural eco-farming and environmental NGO project at the outskirts of Shanghai and a fellow of Leadership for Environment and Development."
