City Maintenance

17-18 October 2012, Goodwood Park Hotel, Singapore.

City maintenance is usually taken for granted as a background feature of cities, done in the quiet of night as part of engineer’s or waste collector’s secret business. Maintenance, done well, should however, be seen as part of the central and long-term planning of a city. It is crucial for the sustainability, vibrance, and liveability of good cities.

With these concerns to the fore, the Global Compact Cities Programme and the Global Cities Research Institute, RMIT, are sponsoring a major conference in Singapore.  This event will be chaired by Paul James, Director of the Global Cities Research Institute.
