Tech-ing Urban Solutions to the Next Level:

Re-imagining Cities for Greater Resilience

Date: 26 October 2022, Wednesday
Time: 10.25am – 11.05am
Venue: Resorts World Sentosa

During pre-pandemic times, bustling and overcrowded cities provided a conducive environment for viruses and other diseases to thrive. The pandemic thrust upon us the practice of remote working, which led to the transformation of CBDs into mixed-used neighbourhoods with more residences. As we emerge from the pandemic, there is a need to design cities that are more resilient and adaptable, to enable people to continue with their daily lives with minimal disruptions. Moving forward, it is important to discover what are new urban solutions to address future opportunities.
