IFHP Conference in Singapore all wrapped up

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the speakers, delegates our partners and sponsors and others who helped make the IFHP Conference in Singapore possible.

Now that our Conference in Singapore has wrapped up, we want to extend a big thank you to the many members and peers who came from multiple continents to attend. We are grateful for your continued support. Also, we wish to thank the speakers and moderators for the invaluable contribution you made. We appreciate the time you took to share your insights and expertise with our attendees. Thanks for your time and effort.


This year's conference saw some exciting additions: a morning session where specific urban development projects on integrated planning and their governance where showcased; an afternoon session devoted to perspectives on integrated planning from Europe, Asia and North America; a keynote duet on cities for people and people for cities between Jan Gehl and Flemming Borreskov.

While the IFHP Conference in Singapore may have wrapped up, there are still a lot of pending issues for 2014 and beyond, and as such we are sure there’s a lot you can look forward to! Next up we’ll be holding a Roundtable at the AESOP Conference on co-creation of public spaces in cities in transition, July 10th 2014. Hope to see you there! Also, do check out the rest of our assortment of activities in 2014 aiming at creating opportunities to share, discuss and develop solution-orientated knowledge for a better urban future.


To get in the mood, here's a little photo teaser from our Conference in Singapore.


Once again thank you for your time with us. We look forward to planning more educational activities for you and thank you for your continued support.
