The future begins now. New Urban, the ASIA 2020 theme, is a renewed approach and call for collective action to shape future living. We invite changemakers from across Asia to daringly reimagine and redefine urban thinking, lifestyles and ecosystems. Utilizing purpose-driven, people-centric innovations, we can transform current social and environmental challenges into a positive force for growth.
Break Grounds. Build Change. Birth Hope. Let us start building a New Urban by asking and reimagining what is possible:
Rethink Learning: How can we learn and practice how to be happy?
Global Citizenship: How can we target local problems with a global perspective and cross-cultural partnerships?
Health & Wellness
How does the meaning of “wellness” differ between different age groups and across cultures?
How can we motivate people to transform awareness into everyday action to promote sustainability?
Wisdom City: How can we share knowledge within a community and nurture human values in an increasingly “smart” city?
What role does art and media play in daily life to foster creative expression and a sense of freedom?
