QuickTabs - PLANNING

Session 1: They say “Old is Gold” – but is it really? Urban regeneration through Integrated Planning

Time: 9.00 am - 10.30 am (90min)

Cities are complex entities consisting of multiple urban systems. The various urban systems need to be coordinated through an integrated urban plan to create liveable outcomes, and to sustain quality of life for citizens. Integrating social, economic and environmental considerations into planning efforts is required to rejuvenate distressed urban areas in a holistic manner. How can the use of innovative technology and systems help governments to make more informed planning decisions?

Session 2: Can We Create Inclusive Communities through Master Planning?

Time: 11.00 am – 12.30 pm (90min)

Cities have always hosted much diversity with people of different ethnicities, religions, social classes, ideologies, and wealth co-existing in formal and informal settlements. As urbanisation continues apace globally, cities are no longer just centres of commerce, industry and political power. They also serve as havens to increasingly diverse communities. This session explores how cities can be planned so that they are more inclusive and accepting of diversity.
