YSEALI Urban Planning and Smart Growth Workshop

YSEALI Urban Planning and Smart Growth Workshop
16-21 May 2017 | SINGAPORE

The five-day YSEALI urban planning workshop will bring together 60 young leaders aged 20-35 from all ten member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN): Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Through panel discussions, speakers, site visits, and group projects, the workshop will engage participants on the range of issues surrounding urbanization and how planning can help address them. This includes opportunities and challenges not only in terms of configuring the physical environment (natural and man-made), but also policy, governance, and economic considerations when dealing with issues of culture and heritage, industry and tourism, infrastructure, and social development. The workshop will expose participants to solutions used in Singapore and elsewhere, and inspire them to find ways to adapt and apply these in their home countries, using governance and policy, social innovation, cross-sector partnerships and technology.
