Urban Biodiversity & Ecology for Sustainable Cities - 30th Jun 2010


Singapore  will  be  hosting the 2nd World Cities Summit (WCS 2010) from 28
Jun  to  1  Jul 2010.  The event is co-organised by the Centre for Liveable
Cities  and  the Civil Service College, Singapore. WCS 2010 will be held in
conjunction  with  the  Singapore International Water Week 2010 and the 2nd
World  Urban Transport Leaders Summit.  The WCS 2010 is expected to attract
some  1,000  delegates  from around the world, including Ministers, Mayors,
business leaders, senior policy makers and high-level experts.
 
The theme for WCS 2010 is "Liveable and Sustainable Cities for the Future",
with  a  focus  on  good  governance,  best  practices,  and innovative and
pragmatic  solutions  for building liveable and sustainable communities. An
interesting  programme  has  been  lined  up  comprising  thematic  plenary
sessions  as  well  as  high  level  expert  sessions building, sustainable
development,  as  well  as  challenges  confronting  cities such as climate
change, water, energy and food security. WCS 2010 will provide an excellent
networking  platform  for the exchange of best practices and identification
of urban solutions that are practical, scalable and replicable.
 
The  National  Parks  Board  (NParks)  will  be  organising an Expert Panel
Session titled "Urban Biodiversity & Ecology for Sustainable Cities" on the
third day of the Summit on 30 Jun 2010. In this session, we have invited an
international  panel  of  eminent  speakers  to share their experiences and
knowledge on enhancing cities' biodiversity. NParks will also be organising
an  Urban  Biodiversity  Conservation  Learning  Journey  to Pulau Ubin for
delegates  to have a first-hand experience of Chek Jawa, a nature area with
rich marine biodiversity, which has been conserved in Singapore. It is our
pleasure to invite you and your colleagues to join in NPark’s Expert Panel
Session and our Urban Biodiversity Conservation Learning Journey.
