Avoiding A Climate Crisis - The Greatest Innovation Challenge In History

Professor Vinod Thomas, Visiting Professor, NUS and Perrine Hamel, Assistant Professor, NTU Asian School of the Environment

Moderator: Kami Navarro, Senior Reporter, Asian Scientist

This is not a drill. We emit around 51billion tonnes of greenhouse gasses to the atmosphere every year. The consequences of these emissions are profound. In order to mitigate a climate crisis in the near future, the world will need to undertake an unprecedented transition in the next 30 years. This will require dramatic changes to the lives of billions of citizens. What are these changes? How will city design respond to factor the necessary changes?

Panel: The Place Paradox - Designing City Spaces For The Next Decade

Naveen Menon, President, Cisco ASEAN; Dr. Thai Lai Pham, President, Siemens ASEAN; Esther An, Chief Sustainability Officer, City Developments

Moderator: Kok-Chin Tay, ASEAN Lead, Smart Cities Council

City dwellers relationship with ‘’Place’’ has been changing for a long time. Movie theatres are giving way to Netflix. Shopping Malls are giving way to Amazon. Workplaces are giving way to sophisticated Enterprise Software. Covid-19 has accelerated the social shifts stimulated by unprecedented developments in digital communications, leaving many of tomorrow’s questions on 'Place' needing answers today. This session will explore the new era of work and play in Cities, and the benefits, opportunities, challenges and threats that exist as we transition.
