Introduction to the Committee and the Topic:

As one of the six main organs of the United Nations, the United Nations Economic and Social Council has been at the heart of the United Nations system to advance the three dimensions of sustainable development – economic, social and environmental ever since 1945.

With the acceleration of urbanization, traditional vehicles, as an important means of transportation, face potential environmental and energy crisis. Meanwhile, hydrogen is a clean, efficient, safe and sustainable energy source and is believed to be the most potential alternative in the 21st century. However, there are still plenty of challenges for the promotion of hydrogen society, especially in terms of technology. Besides, the development of the hydrogen society is closely related to the development of housing and community. It is of crucial importance to upgrade the existing housing with regards to the needs of urban expansion, and provide systematic assistance for future community planning to improve the quality of public spaces. Through promoting hydrogen society and the sustainable development of cities and communities, we will help promote the 2030 sustainable development agenda and contribute to the achievement of 17 sustainable development goals.
