At the beginning of this century, it was introduced to China by our scholar Professor Long Hualou, and was first explored in practice, and received great attention from academics and the government. The connotation of land use transformation is constantly enriched and evolved, and at the beginning of entering China, it was used to characterise the corresponding temporal changes of land use structure and form in the process of economic and social development. With the deepening of research and the improvement of China's land resource management level, land use transformation has not only portrayed the overall structural changes in land use brought about by different stages of economic and social development, but has also gradually penetrated into the study of the transformation of land subtypes, and the connotation of land use transformation has also expanded from land use structure to the two major aspects of explicit and implicit transformation of land, with a greater focus on subtle and implicit transformation of land use brought about by economic and social development. It focuses more on the subtle and hidden transformation changes of land use brought about by economic and social development. According to the current academic understanding of land use transformation, the definition of land use transformation can be summarised as the process of changing land use patterns from one state to another, driven by changes in economic and social development, which includes both explicit (quantity, area, space) and implicit (quality, property rights, function, etc.) land use changes, reflecting the changes in a particular stage of economic and social development. It reflects the game and conflict regulation process of land use patterns between different interest subjects and sectors at a specific stage of economic and social development.</p> 2023-09-21T00:00:00-04:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Research on the Path of Urban Buildings’ Emission Reduction under the "Dual Carbon" Goal 2023-09-21T21:30:16-04:00 Bijun Ni <p>Construction industry in China has always been a "high-carbon" industry, based on China's goals of reaching "carbon peak" in 2030 and "carbon neutrality" in 2060, it is particularly important to carry out low-carbon transformation of traditional buildings. Under the background of the "dual carbon" goal, this paper analyzes the whole life cycle of urban buildings and explores the four stages of preparation, construction, operation and recycling to find possible problems and solutions in the development of low-carbon green buildings. Low-carbon, environmentally friendly green buildings are the development trend of urban buildings, which can meet people's growing needs on the one hand, and accelerate the transition of original urban buildings to green buildings on the other hand, ensuring the smooth realization of China's "dual carbon" goal.</p> 2023-09-21T00:00:00-04:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Research on the Application of Composite Ecological Green Ring Construction Strategy in Old City Renewal 2023-09-21T21:30:12-04:00 Jing Tang Qiuwan Zhang <p>In order to beautify the living environment of urban blocks and improve the quality of urban landscape space design, this paper analyzes the current landscape status of old city blocks based on the research of landscape environment problems in the renewal of old urban areas, and finds that the landscape of old city blocks has the characteristics of fine landscape space, closed landscape, and poor environmental quality of public landscape space. Dig deep into the importance of building a network and ring landscape system in the process of old city renewal, that is, to meet the spiritual needs of residents around the renewal area, improve the level of art and culture of the entire city, and create a better living environment. The strategy of improving the spatial environment of the neighborhood by building a composite ecological green ring is proposed, which provides interactive space places and infrastructure for urban residents to communicate and communicate, so as to achieve the effect of "scenery and its use, and green ring people's walking". To meet the pursuit of green and healthy living environment of modern people, it also connects the urban historical context in the old city, and at the same time injects new vitality into the neighborhood life, creating favorable environmental and spatial conditions for the better development of the city and the better life of the people.</p> 2023-09-21T00:00:00-04:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Research on Scientific and Technological Support Issues for the Green Development of Modern Agricultural Industrial Parks 2023-09-21T21:30:07-04:00 Caizhou Cui <p>The construction of modern agricultural industrial parks is a basic demonstrative project to promote rural revitalization. Green development is the core requirement of high-quality development of industrial park. Currently, the development and application of existing science and technology in industrial parks cannot meet the requirements of all-round green development of the parks.

More than most other occupational groups. Most nursing activities require long periods of standing and walking. These job requirements can cause WRMDs problems in the lower limbs, and there are few footwear products available specifically for use by clinical nurses. Therefore, improving the current clinical nurse shoes and improving the wearing comfort of clinical nurse shoes are the necessary conditions to reduce the lower limb discomfort of clinical nurses. The purpose of this study is :(1) to test and obtain the foot morphology and walking gait characteristics of nurses in standing state by using human foot scanning and sports biomechanics technology, and to design comfortable clinical nursing footwear products suitable for nurses through shoe last optimization and application of environmentally friendly materials. (2) Sports biomechanical testing technology was used to test and compare the developed clinical care shoes with other shoes in the market, and the biomechanical characteristics of participants wearing different shoes were measured and compared to verify the design effect of clinical care shoes and improve it. This research method is divided into three stages. First, field observations and exercise biomechanics tests of the participants were performed, and data acquisition included plantar pressure characteristics, a three-dimensional foot model, foot surface temperature distribution, walking speed, and proportions of walking, standing, and sitting. Secondly, the clinical nursing shoes were designed based on the test results and the sample shoes were made. Finally, the function of professional nursing was evaluated through the exercise biomechanical testing technique. Measurements included lower limb joint range of motion (ROM), foot Pressure, ground reaction force (GRF), and subjective discomfort ratings for the lower body and feet. To summarize the findings of this study, comfortable clinical care shoes should emphasize arch support at the sole, use three-dimensional vertical insoles, and design heel height below 5 cm to significantly reduce plantar pressure distribution and ground impact, increase ankle flexibility, and recommend the use of pressure socks to reduce the risk of varicose veins in the lower extremities.</p> 2023-09-21T00:00:00-04:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Research on Inter-provincial Cooperative Development of Regional Tourism: A Case Study of Hukou Waterfall in Shaanxi and Shanxi, a 5A Scenic Spot 2023-09-21T21:29:50-04:00 Yuan Yuan <p>The Hukou Waterfall is located in the provinces of Shaanxi and Shanxi. Due to its unique geographical location, the waterfall is divided into two parts and managed separately by the respective administrative regions. However, the potential social and economic benefits of the Hukou Waterfall, which boasts exceptional tourism resources, have not been fully realized. The development of regional tourism cooperation across provinces has always been a challenge. It requires careful consideration on how to overcome differences and foster collaborative development among regions to create a unified and exceptional tourist destination that provides the best experience for visitors. This paper analyzes the successful path of the Hukou Waterfall, a typical case of regional tourism cooperation across provinces, to identify the current issues and future development directions.
