摘要
Promoting citizens’ subjective wellbeing is considered an important measure to social cohesion and social sustainability. It has also become one of the most important objectives of development in Urban China today. Subjective wellbeing has been a hot topic across a variety of disciplines including psychology, economics and sociology. Though lag behind other disciplines, geographers have started to pay attention to issues related to wellbeing and life satisfaction. This proposed research intends to make a contribution to the studies on subjective wellbeing from a geography perspective. The study will adopt the time-geography framework and investigate the interrelations between individuals’ subjective wellbeing, daily activities, built environment and social network. Case studies will be conducted in Beijing and Guangzhou, respectively the representative city in Northern and Southern China. This study may open a new chapter for time geography research and provide a new perspective for China urban studies. Findings of this research may provide scientific justifications for Chinese cities to design policies with the objectives of improving citizens’ quality of life.
