Delivering Tomorrow’s Cities Together

Three-year global partnership convening city-focused global conversations

Imagine 2060 is a unique endeavor that leverages the complementary experience of two global organizations – Asia Society and AECOM – to cultivate a “living conversation” aimed at delivering the great cities of tomorrow, by convening and connecting conversations among diverse stakeholders in each city and across cities. The 2017 edition of Imagine 2060 will feature special high-level events in five of the world’s great cities – Manila, Sydney, Los Angeles, New York and Hong Kong – each bringing together leaders in urban design, infrastructure, business, culture, and public policy in the pursuit of a common goal: to imagine a long-term vision for each city, and to deliver innovative ways to realize that vision.


In its inaugural year, Imagine 2060 will look at the evolving role of the urban waterfront under the heading “At The Water’s Edge”. The idea is to reconnect with the origin of so many of the world’s great cities, and to undertake a wide-ranging examination of how these cities’ diverse approaches to the waterfront have shaped the quality of life for citizens, in radically different ways.

“These are some of the most diverse and vibrant cities on our planet but they share common stresses caused by development, urbanization and densification which are only going to intensify with the predicted level of population growth.”
Sean Chiao
President, AECOM Asia Pacific
“Imagine 2060 will offer a guide not only for the five cities involved, but for any major metropolis interested in creating a roadmap for the future. And to a great extent, the future of our planet hinges on a successful, sustainable future for the great cities of the world.”
Tom Nagorski
Executive Vice President, Asia Society
