The panel will explore questions such as:
- If ongoing change is the natural order of things, and this pace of change is intensifying, how can and how will cities plan for greater adaptability?
- As our cities grow, how will new and diverse populations be supported, accommodated and nurtured?
- As our landscapes and infrastructure evolve and age, how will we continue to develop and design efficiently, responsibly, resiliently, and even ― playfully?
