About the Workshop
The five-day YSEALI urban planning workshop, to take place in Singapore, 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.
Upon their return home, workshop participants should be able to begin the process of implementing projects and sharing lessons learned with their colleagues in government, business, and other civic/institutional groups, such as community organizations, non-profits, and schools.
All expenses will be paid for selected participants.
