Programmed as a series of Structured Conversations, the Public Summit attempts to bridge artistic practices and academic research with bottom-up initiatives and explore various strategies and participatory approaches, projecting solutions and desires for future “cities for people”.

Structured Conversation #1: Food, Air, Water

This session opens up the debate surrounding sustainability in relation to food sources, water resources, and air quality. As elements that possess fundamental significance for all life, how has urban development and technology impacted and intervened into these resources? Can sustainability be achieved only with improved technology? Is sustainability sustainable? (William S. W. Lim) How can we better understand and work with regenerative processes of nature to create a more informed way of living for all?
