Growing demands for safe, sustainable and healthy cities are driving the search for new planning strategies for a post petroleum age. A people oriented approach to City Planning may constitute a strategy for meeting these challenges.
50 years after Jane Jacobs pointed to the shortcomings of the technocratic city planning principles the time is ripe for meaningful change. Jan Gehl discusses the need for re-orientation of our cities through global case stories from among others - Copenhagen and New York and illustrates the case for people inspired interventions and city development.
Speaker: Jan Gehl
Chair: Sunand Prasad, Co founder of Penoyre & Prasad LLP
