The 2020 Urban Development Webinar is to be held on August 22nd at the Zoom. This year, UCI is partnering with the Institute for Development Planning of Tsinghua University, and the Centre for Liveable Cities under Singapore's Ministry of National Development, to provide insightful discussion on the pathway to a smart, coordinated, inclusive, resilient, and green city in the next era of urban development. Our speakers also include leading figures from the public, private and academic sectors.


The theme is  Formulating a Winning Sustainability Strategy in the Next Era of Urban Development. In 2020, cities face up to the twin challenges of economic growth and city governance caused by the coronavirus outbreak, even as climate change and environmental risks to lives and livelihoods continue to mount.  Looking ahead, what are the key sustainability challenges that will shape the new decade of cities? How can cities rise above the risks and uncertainty and achieve a more sustainable model of development? What is the pathway to a smart, coordinated, inclusive, resilient, and green city?
