Dear IAG List,


We are pleased to announce that James Cook University is organising the 1st Sustainable Tropical Urbanism Symposium on Friday, 27th September 2019.  The symposium is titled Tropical cities in a warming world and will be held at the James Cook University’s Singapore Campus (149 Sims Drive, Singapore, 387380).


We aim to reach academic researchers, practicing planners and architects, public artists, local government officers, students in urban planning and design and anyone interested in understanding tropical cities. Themes of the symposium include, but are not limited to: 

•             how tropical cities respond to climate in an era of climate change 

•             creation/curation of tropical space and place

•             methods for tropical urban research

We look forward to welcoming you to this event.


Warm regards, Lisa Law and Simona Azzali
