M17 Park Summit

23.07.2017 (Sun)
Session 1: 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM
Session 2: 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM

Talking about public space we easily look to the West for role models, especially as Asia is humid, mosquitoish and Asians don’t yet have a vibrant outdoor culture. How are Asians using parks at the moment? What do they think about parks? We gather 20+ city delegates to share park experience and town culture, to piece together a park discourse from this side of the earth.

Delegates coming from (till 11 Jul):

Bangkok Ganzhou Ningbo Tacloban City
Bogor Guangzhou Phnom Penh Taipei
Changsha Hong Kong Kathmandu Weihai
Dehradun Hsinchu Shenzhen Wuxi
Dubai Jakarta Singapore Yangon
