Themes

We believe that we all have the right to live in cities that cater for the environment, 促进健康和福祉, protect us from natural and human-made disasters and make use of the latest digital technologies to serve humanity. Therefore, 将致力于城市的发展:可持续, Liveable, 弹性和数字.

Digital Cities: Under this theme we shall be exploring new ways of exploiting technology in the cities of tomorrow, 但同时也试图了解它们可能产生的社会影响.

Sustainable Cities: 研究 under this theme focuses on how to improve life for those living in cities today and how to reduce the impact they have on the areas around them.

Liveable Cities: this theme will explore how to prevent disease and enhance urban health as well as ageing well, at the same time seeking to understand what it means to live well in the city.

Resilient Cities: will be focusing on how to make cities as well as communities and citizens more resilient, 灵活适应气候变化和其他全球性挑战, 比如未来的流行病.

Our Values: 

从非常规的角度来看: We believe that if we do today what we did yesterday we will end up with the same results. 这就是为什么对我们来说, 做出可持续的改变需要走出自己的舒适区, 探索新的工作方式. Co-developing solutions with all our stakeholders is the only way to implement solutions that are feasible, 可接受的和可持续的.

推动边界: Our current complex issues can no longer be solved with pre-set responses. They require, more than ever, creative and future-oriented solutions that anticipate (not only problems but envisioned opportunities) rather than react to problems, going beyond, 共建包容美好未来, respect diversity, and fair.

从每一个人: Innovation happens at the boundary of disciplines and global challenges require us working together with all stakeholders and fields. We believe this is the best way to solve ‘wicked-problems’ and to learn from past mistakes.

放眼全球,做正确的事:全球挑战需要当地解决. Protecting the planet and ensuring that all people enjoy peace and prosperity is everyone’s business, 无论我们在哪里出生或生活, our race, gender, ethnicity, 宗教信仰或社会经济地位. That’s why, for us taking a global perspective starts from looking into contexts locally, 做对社会负责和公平的事, is the perfect vehicle for addressing some of the biggest issues facing billions of people across the world.

相互交流与合作 国际挑战需要巨大的答案. For us, it starts with bringing together expertise from across disciplines and organisations, 在世界各地开展合作, exchange, 共同设计和连接.
