This month, Julian Wong, the founder of Beijing Energy Network and author of The Green Leap Forward will share a new thought concept that emphasizes on looking into sustainability as a whole system. Speaking from his rich experience in energy advisory across multidisciplinary practices in both Asia and the U.S, he will identify a few real life examples where an enhanced awareness of systems thinking in the sustainability context would lead to vastly different result. Julian will also discuss the implications of systems thinking for each of us in creating a sustainable future.
