1.Over View

The past, present and future of the city – what does the next 100 years look like?
The SDGs Sustainable Design Goals were adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in September 2015, and 193 member countries and regions pledged to achieve them by 2030. Over the next 30 years, 70% of the world’s urban population will live in cities, and there are concerns about the rise of various social and environmental problems. Therefore, this symposium looks at the past, present, and future of “cities” based on the common understanding that efforts at the city / region level are indispensable for achieving the SDGs, and for ensuring sustainability over the next 100 years.
On the first day, prominent experts will come together to present strategies and challenges that will enhance the sustainability of cities in the Asia-Oceania region.
On the second day, in addition to invited lectures from researchers and practitioners, interdisciplinary, integrated discussions will be held by researchers from different fields through group presentations.
The focus of the symposium explores the roles that we can play. Strategies and technologies that can help curb the amplification of current social and environmental problems in the Asia-Oceania region will be presented through interdisciplinary perspectives offered by researchers from different fields.
