We are now accepting applications for Study Space XI: City Redevelopment, Infrastructure, and Heritage in the Era of Climate Change in Singapore from June 17-22, 2018. This weeklong workshop is being organized by the Center for the Comparative Study of Metropolitan Growth at Georgia State University College of Law in conjunction with ICOMOS Singapore and the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Foundation.
Through daily lectures from leading experts and guided site visits, topics discussed throughout the week will include:
- Balancing economic goals with natural resources and land limitations
- Land-use law, urban planning, housing, and equitable and sustainable development
- Smart city movement, infrastructure finance, and taxation
- Cultural heritage and historic preservation
- Land reclamation, environmental law, greenspace preservation, and climate change.
Additionally, through the support of the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Foundation, this program has been expanded to include a broader, comparative perspective of these issues focusing not only on Singapore but Hong Kong and other Asia Pacific countries.
The cost of the program is $1200 and includes scheduled group meals (see schedule online), speaker honoraria and site visits. Hotel (estimated at $1200 for the week with breakfast daily), airfare, and airport transportation must be purchased separately.
