Inclusive Citymaking

Related Tags

The world has changed: companies have created empires without borders, as countries are building nation brands. Cities like Singapore and London have become beacons of innovation. In the new connected world, defined by the sharing economy yet split by ideological divisions, companies, countries, communities and cities are learning to cope and adapt, as they strive to deliver value, wealth, well being, and prosperity for their stakeholders.

The Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore is partnering Grab, Southeast Asia’s leading ride-hailing and payments platform, to offer a 5-day executive programme that serves to seed progressive, long-term thinking on city planning and development, which takes into account the spirit and “heart-ware” of the city. Participants will interact with leading experts from around the world in exploring innovations and strategies for tapping the power of stakeholders from all walks of life to foster urban excellence.

The programme will focus on the exploration of cities from a practitioner’s perspective. As the title suggests,the emphasis will be on citymaking as an idea, discipline, and practice.

Topics include:

  • Positioning Cities
  • Cities and the Shared Econony
  • The Future of Cities, Cities of the Future
  • Cities as Products: Marketing and Promotion Strategies
  • Whose City is it Anyway: Governance and Management
  • Global Cities – Challenges and Opportunities
  • Place-making in Cities
  • Building Attractive CBDs and Downtowns
  • Urban Regeneration Strategies for Revitalising Cities
    and Towns

This programme serves to seed progressive, futurist thinking on city planning and development. Participants will interact with leading experts from around the world in exploring innovations and strategies for tapping the power of stakeholders from all walks of life to foster urban excellence.

As the course progresses, participants will leverage what they learn to construct a model city, and so too will the evolution of the model that participants will be designing.

The programme is targeted primarily at ASEAN and South Asian administrators and leaders, particularly mid to senior level practitioners who are engaged with the management of complex urban transformation programmes, and will benefit from the pedagogy. Private sector participation — senior executives and entrepreneurs — is also encouraged, particularly from companies who are involved with doing business with cities. Limited seats will also be available for exceptional journalists and writers as well as social entrepreneurs interested in urban innovation and change.
