Penang Symposium On Greening Urban Growth


The two-day symposium organized by Think City in February 2012, proposed solutions to the green growth conundrum of how to sustain economic growth and improve the people’s quality of life while dealing with the pressures of inexorable urbanisation.

The forum provided a platform for a wide range of distinguished opinion leaders, including economists, mayors, researchers, management strategists, policy analysts, urban planners and green business executives to provide inputs towards some of the most pressing issues facing
cities today.



The greening of economic growth is the only way in which serious progress can be made on the long term sustainability agenda, while also capturing the energy of city-led economic growth and the inevitability of further rapid urbanisation.
