Using aesthetic education as a link to connect the history and future of cities


Recently, the Beijing Urban Sub center showcased "OneSpace, MoreChance" as the exhibition theme at Milan Design Week China Week in 2024. Through vivid video and poster products, the sub center showcased its innovative solutions and development achievements in the process of building a green city to the world, showcasing the construction achievements of green development demonstration zones and a new urban style that is livable and business friendly. A good life cannot be separated from the nourishment of beauty. As a key force to enhance aesthetic literacy, aesthetic education can help people deepen their perception and understanding of beauty, strengthen our beliefs in life, motivate us to maintain a positive and upward mental state, and make life full of vitality. Not only is it the sub center of Beijing, but in recent years, many places have actively explored and utilized the rich resources of local cultural and artistic venues such as historical blocks, museums, and art galleries.
