Transition City – Seoul 2019 International Conference
September 26 - September 27
Building on the 2018 conference, the Transition City Seoul 2019 International Conference seeks practical solutions for the city’s transition to a new civilization.
With the theme “The Road to Ecology Transition and Alternative Economic Indicators,” the conference has a comprehensive agenda enhanced by citizen debate, policy research, expert seminars, and sustainable development education.
Sessions are grounded in the need for transformation in thinking about civilization and bold actions in response to the urban ecology crisis in order to seek innovative approaches to respond to current crises such as fine dust, climate change, aging society, unemployment, and deepening economic-social polarization in urban areas
Main topics to be covered include:
- Building solidarity regarding the urgency of civilization transition
- Establishing a strategic action plan for implementation of transition promoted by the city
- Introduction of notable Seoul facilities and programs: coordinating media such as interviews with the mayor; cementing Seoul’s commitment to transition through policy planning
- Communication and engagement with future generations
A new development model for Seoul and the need for urban policy based on a new paradigm through deepening discussion of city government policy and strategy, the Seoul Metropolitan Government is leading the way in turning transition discourse into policy.
