Regenerative urban planning: Distant future or Reality? - 09 Dec 2023

A fireside chat on Regenerative strategies for future-proofing cities between Hugh Lim, Executive Director of the Centre for Liveable Cities, and Soren Brondum, Managing Director of Ramboll. 

What are the characteristics of a regenerative city? How do you plan and develop greater synergy between the built environment and natural ecosystems in Singapore, that has pledged to become a ‘City in Nature’? What experiences could Singapore share as a highly dense, yet liveable, clean, and green city, despite having no hinterland and very limited natural resources? And where do you look for inspiration when you are already at the forefront of urban planning, yet facing greater uncertainties of climate change, and challenges in the transition towards a net-zero future

Center for Liveable Cities and Ramboll have partnered up to explore how regenerative thinking and principles can be applied in planning and design using Singapore as a case city. In a unique, collaborative format, the parties will bring together executive inter-agency stakeholders along with financiers, developers and academia to explore, assess and determine elements in a roadmap for cities to move beyond conventional sustainability, towards being climate-positive.
