Imagine Mumbai

In Search of New Ground

An imperative for India’s fast growing metropolises and cities, like Mumbai, is achieving an efficient balance of development and sustainability to meet the civic needs of the growing urban population. At the same time that large scale infrastructure projects are urgently required for mobility and connectivity, as well as expanding the city space, they also present alternate and significant challenges to the environment, as does increasing demand for essential resources and waste management. How can we provide future land capacity to meet all these needs, while ensuring holistic, forward-looking and sustainable approaches? What are some of the lessons India can draw from others, such as Singapore? National and international experts from urban policy and development will participate in an exchange of ideas and best practices on how to optimize use of the vital commodity of land, for Mumbai and the many other high growth cities across India.

Imagine Singapore

In Search of New Ground

Singapore is a vibrant city that offers many exciting possibilities, but like other cities, it is confronting new and emerging challenges. Key among these are its limited land area and the need to plan for a future estimated population growth of 6.9 million by 2030. For a small city state like Singapore, land is a treasured resource that needs to be carefully planned and designed for and the quest for new ground means challenging the status quo of how land areas are currently being extended, developed and utilized.

With Singapore’s aspiration to become a more sustainable and resilient city, its looks to innovative strategies to help the city state free up more surface land, and at the same time, look beneath itself in its endeavor for more space.

How can Singapore turn its challenges into opportunities to provide for future infrastructure and civic needs while ensuring a holistic and sustainable approach which allows Singapore to retain its identity and heritage? What lessons can be learnt in the way the island nation approaches urban planning and city rejuvenation? Imagine Singapore convenes public policy makers and leaders in urban planning, infrastructure and business in an exchange of ideas to envision a new paradigm where Singapore can stride boldly into her future.
