About the Forum

According to statistics released by the United Nations, more than 55% of the world's population now live in urban environments, a proportion that is expected to increase to 68% by 2050.

While urbanisation may improve people’s quality of life, the potential for development can only be fully unleashed if solutions can be found to address associated issues such as housing, widening wealth gap, public health, environment, sustainability and ageing population. In this connection, there is a need for the society to review its assumptions, reposition its work and adopt innovative approaches in addressing new and pressing metropolitan social challenges.
