The Liveable Cities Challenge (LCC), in partnership with the League of Cities of the Philippines and Globe, is set to host another knowledge sharing discussion, this time on how cities can deal with rapid urbanization and its impact on communities by focusing on the role of green building and open spaces.
For its seventh webinar this year, LCC and Globe will present Liveable Cities Labs: Green Buildings and Open Spaces on Wednesday, August 25, 2021 at 3-5pm. The discussion will touch on how cities can maximize the utilization of green buildings and available open spaces.
“Together with our esteemed webinar guests, we intend to explore different plans and solutions that may help Philippine cities deal with concerns such as rising population density, good connectivity, integrated transportation systems, and efficient public services, while maintaining and promoting green open spaces. We are optimistic that the upcoming webinar can give useful tips to city leaders and stakeholders on how finite resources such as land be utilized in a more productive manner for buildings, mobility, and open spaces,”said Bill Luz, Chief Resilience Officer of the Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation and moderator of the LCC, Globe Lab Webinar Series.
