For Martin Wawra, managing director of Voith Turbo Greater China, "dynamic" is the word that best sums up his impression of Shanghai and Shanghainese because the city is "changing so quickly" and "the people are always looking for something new."

"They want to learn," Wawra said. "And if they don't learn something, they're getting bored and they will change jobs. "

Seeing how the air quality has improved in the city over the years, the German has full confidence that China will meet its ambitious goals of peaking CO2 emissions by 2030 and achieving carbon neutrality by 2060.
