Conference Global Challenges | Local Solutions

The Manila Urban Initiative for Southeast Asia

Changes to urbanized regions in Southeast Asia affect millions of people. Populations grow rapidly. The physical and the social infrastructure have not kept pace with the demands imposed by these changes. Regional hubs, which were already big, are in the process of evolving into a new urban typology: The Megalopolis.

The Global Challenges | Local Solutions conference proposes to deepen and to evaluate examples of alternative strategies in three thematic panels: Housing, Infrastructure and Water. Venues:
  • Friday, September 19, 2014: 5/F School of Design and Arts Building, De La Salle College of Saint Benilde, Manila
  • Saturday, September 20, 2014: University of Santo Tomas, Manila
The conference will be held in Manila and will be mainly supported by Goethe Institut Philippines. Additional support is provided by the regional Goethe-Instituts in Australia, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
