I am Lalit Chudiwala from Delhi and I'm involved in a scientific research from the past 9 years and I've developed a concept for producing very high amount of energy at low cost on the principles of a free Radical Chain Reaction.
Application : Produce energy for thermal power Stations.

Present Status
Steps already taken:
1) Solved the Chemical Reaction
2) Reference papers to support this Reaction
3) Simulation Data
4) Developed the Prototype Design on Papers

Steps to be taken:
Physical development of the Prototype

As we need new sources of cheap, eco-friendly and sustainable energy, this invention is the perfect solution for all.

To move forward, I need funds/a team/ a Lab to develop the prototype. As a matter of fact I don't have any strong Educational /Scientific background. Although, many scientists are already taking interest in my invention but this project needs very high level of scientific knowledge. I'm also seeking out for enough funds and space for the advancement of the project.

Looking forward for you to take ample interest in my project and help me fulfill my dream of helping the world to reduce carbon emission with my invention as much as possible.Check my project at Researchgate site by searching my name Lalit Chudiwala..or send me your email id...

Hoping for an early reply.

[Invitation to APRU members: Join the Future City Summit 2022 in Hong Kong]

Future City Summit (the “FCS” / the “Annual Meet”) is an annual meeting hosted by the Good City Foundation, supported by 35 City Partners in Asia, Africa, Europe, and North America. The annual meet promotes insights of cities in the domains of social technology innovations, urban design, and public governance and provides an inclusive networking platform for future young city leaders. Join us to explore the key elements that shape the united city branding of Hong Kong at Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks - Corporation Head Office.

In the 7th Annual Meet, with the central theme “Legacy Rejuvenating - Little Dragon Rise Again”, we strive to reassess the future linkage of city branding to the core competitiveness of Hong Kong while the city seeks common ground to reassemble all passionate and critical minds to reinvigorate the socio-economic vibrancy and connectivity to the world.

While the city is determined to repurpose itself as an innovation and technology hub upon its strong global financial foundation, a more vital spirit of socio-economic and cultural coherency shall fill up our neighborhood and the brand name of Hong Kong through diversities among 18 districts. Besides the Keynote and Panel Discussion in the morning, the key session, “Our City Festival Sandbox” is an open workshop in the afternoon for all stakeholders and voices to share, debate, and brainstorm constructively towards a shared brand that truly reconnects us in Hong Kong to the world again.

Time: 13 December 2022, 9 am - 5 pm HKT (In-Person Event, Chatham House Rule)

Free Registration for the LACIC Conference!

The Landscape Architecture Construction International Conference (LACIC) 2022 online conference will take place on December 17th and 18th (Beijing Time). The theme of the conference is “Design and Construction of Waterscapes”. Three universities co-host the conference, including Department of Landscape Architecture, School of Architecture, Tsinghua University; Department of Architecture, Civil Engineering, Landscape Architecture, Space Planning, OST Eastern University of Applied Sciences; Faculty of Architecture and Planning, Thammasat University. Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU) Sustainable Cities and Landscapes (SCL) serves as the supporting organization for the conference, along with the Association of Landscape Architects of Thailand. Six experts were invited to give presentations in the form of webinars.

LACIC was initiated in 2019 with the intention of establishing an international multilateral platform for the exchange of the research and the know-how knowledge on landscape architecture engineering and construction. Engineering and construction, physically improving the environment of human settlements, is one of the core missions of the landscape architecture profession. But an active platform for such an important topic has long been missing. LACIC has a vision to bridge the gap between the profession and academia by fostering a cutting-edge research community on an internationally recognized landscape architecture platform.
The operation of LACIC involves three basic components:
1. International conferences, held every other year on-site at various locations, and one online conference in between, held in a virtual setting.
2. The international Teaching for Teachers Workshop, under the title of “Workshop for Landscape Architecture BIM Construction” following the international conference on site, once every other year.
3. Local continuing education services, held at companies around the world who are in need of knowledge of landscape architecture BIM or LIM, and other related means of practice with emerging technologies.

We were fortunate to have Sam ‘Ohu Gon III present at our 2022 conference. He told us that it was time for leaders to “put on our feathered capes” and prepare for climactic uncertainties.

Sam is a scientist and a cultural advisor. Combining his knowledge of the ecology of Hawaiʻi with the rich traditional knowledge system here, partially documented in the largest indigenous language archive known in the world, his research involves the multidisciplinary exploration ofthe changes that have taken place in natural and human landscapes here from pre-human to pre-contact and post-contact times. In doing so he documented the remarkably small ecological footprint of pre-contact Hawaiʻi — which was also 100% self-sufficient — and contrasts this with the huge loss of native ecosystems today and our current low level of self sufficiency. He advocates for the integration of Hawaiian knowledge, values, and approaches in modern conservation efforts, and for this biocultural approach was designated a Living Treasure of Hawaiʻi in 2014.

APRU Sustainable Cities and Landscapes Hub

The mission of the APRU Sustainable Cities and Landscapes (SCL) Hub is to advance the sustainability of human societies, focusing on the relationship of the cities and landscapes across the Pacific Rim. We seek to enhance landscape-level sustainability and resilience in the face of continued expansion of cities and the stressors of climate change.

In 2016, The University of Oregon (UO) began the process of building the new APRU Hub around our mission, when we convened an international steering committee with representatives from eight universities to begin the work of building the hub collaboratively. As of September 2017, the hub includes eleven partner universities representing regions across the Pacific Rim. The SCL members include the UO, University of Washington, University of California-Los Angeles, University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, University of Chile, Tsinghua University, National Taiwan University, University of Hong Kong, University of New South Wales, Australia National University, and University of Auckland.

The international steering committee members agreed upon the following four guiding principles to guide the hub and the annual conference:
