The 3rd series of the ‘International Conference on World Class Sustainable Cities’ (WCSC) event is themed ‘Transforming Cities: From Vision to Implementation’. Global challenges and the ensuing economic competitiveness, as well as issues of climate change, has forced cities to re-think their growth strategies. City Transformation has been a successful growth strategy in many cities in order to not just provide settlements to live, work and play, but also the twin challenge of mitigating climate change.
WCSC has been specifically designed to showcase some of the best and successful practices and experiences from World Class Cities, as well as to inform participants of the efforts made within our own nation.
WCSC is also aimed at providing a constructive platform to enlighten, educate, change the mindsets and increase the knowledge of city stakeholders, industry players, Government agencies and the general public on the key challenges faced in transforming our cities into sustainable human settlements that meets the needs of the present and enhancing that of the future. It will be a strategic platform for networking amongst professionals, city managers and citizen groups to exchange ideas, experiences and challenges.
