Date & Time14.12.2017 16.12.2017
LocationYasumoto International Academic Park, CUHK
In the face of environmental, social and economic challenges at both local and global levels, the 10th International Forum on Urbanism (IFoU) Conference invites academics, urban planners and designers from across the world to deliberate on theories, designs and practices on the topic of “The Entrepreneurial City”.
The theme evolved in discussions during the run-up to the 2016 UN Habitat III Conference in Quito. There, nearly 170 countries adopted the New Urban Agenda, among which main goals was to achieve a fairer share of the prosperity brought by urbanization. For this to happen, speakers from 21 countries gather in Hong Kong at the 10th IFoU Conference to investigate how urban design, planning and policies can create opportunities for innovative and socially minded entrepreneurs, motivating new initiatives to make our cities more inclusive and prosperous.
Established in 2004, the IFoU (www.ifou.org) is a network of 23 distinguished universities, research institutes and knowledge centres across Asia, Europe and South America, with the task to strengthen the international collaboration in the field of Urbanism.
