Seeking Better Quality of Community Life: a Park City Approach


This webinar brought together speakers to share thoughts, ideas, and successful cases on the role that community is playing in metropolitan spaces, and how cities are bringing government services, green infrastructures, sports venues, recreational activities, urban parks to communities located in different parts of metropolitan area and connecting people with urban settings. 



In this session the participants were able to have a theoretical background of urban community planning, implementation, and project management. Moreover, through case studies, Chengdu shared community regeneration projects that have been successfully implemented in the urban center, sub-urban center and suburbs, and present how these projects managed to engage citizens before, during and after the design process. In particular: the Micro-Regeneraion East Yulin Rd Community; the Sports Venues Under Flyovers and the Jincheng Community Case

We also heared from a diverse range of perspectives from other parts of the world, such as Ramallah and Amman, acknowledging that the situation is contextual and different in each part of the world.
