Programme Outline

The LUGP critically unpacks the principles, considerations and constraints underpinning Singapore’s development successes. Using cross-sectoral, cross-disciplinary and integrated approaches to analyse urban issues, the programme examines strategies for working with communities and markets, as well as providing insights on leading R&D, engineering capabilities and models of urban development. The programme is based on:

  • Urban Systems Studies seminars – Drawing lessons from the past
  • Learning Journeys – Showcasing how Singapore delivers integrated urban solutions and demonstrating how People-Private-Public networks work together to translate and implement citizen-centric solutions
  • Overseas study trips – Drawing parallels and contrasting Singapore’s urban transformation with the experiences of other cities, including New York, Shanghai and Suzhou
  • Networks – Engaging stellar alumni, public sector leaders, urban pioneers and policy practitioners from the urban infrastructure, environmental, economic and private sectors
