NK Tong is in Board of Trustees Committee for the Real Estate and Housing Development Association (REHDA KL) and the Co-Organising Chairman of the 4th World Class Sustainable Cities Conference (WCSC 2012) that will be held on the 25th of September 2012 at JW Marriott Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. He talks to PropertyGuru on how WCSC 2012 generates change through case studies and interaction with the stakeholders.
Q. Can you enlighten us on what WCSC 2012 is about?
A. WCSC 2012 stands for World Class Sustainable Cities Conference and this year would be the 4th year that it has been running. It is a conference that highlights the best practices of city living around the world. This year we have chosen the case study on the liveability and transformation of Copenhagen, Denmark and Bilbao, Spain.
Q. Cities for People. Could you elaborate why this particular theme was chosen?
A. Basically every year we look at different trends that occur around the city centre and incorporate the most recent cases to our theme. It allows us to look at the city at a more micro level and figure out what needs to be done to ensure that while in the move towards progression, we consider every possibility and are prepared to handle the contingencies.
WCSC 2012 is entirely about shaping cities for the future generation and all city dwellers are encouraged to join and listen to the best practices around the world. The greatest challenge we will face towards this is the growing pains. How we manage the growth determines the change that we incur.
