Description

This theme of Kuching’s conference, "A Platform for Change” is centred on bringing the car-dependent communities to review their deep-seated individualistic lifestyle and culture, in considering other modes of transport and alternative range of strategies to make cities livable; a place for people, rather than a place that is more for the cars.

We will also learn from and seek inspiration from the past, by looking at how the cities were organised spatially, and how these principles could be applied to future developments. The delicate challenges of fostering political and public acceptability for car reduction measures will be examined, including an exploration of the conditions under which people willingly give up their car in exchange for the benefits of living in traffic-free environments.
