YPLAB 2016 – PLACEMAKING BY YOUTHS: CONNECTING THE URBAN DOTS
The Young People’s Lab (YPLAB2016) is a day workshop, initiated as a peripheral event of the 8th series of the ‘International Conference on World Class Sustainable Cities’ (WCSC) event, focusing on young professionals (under 40 years of age) from the built environment spectrum.
YPLAB2016 engages youths to bring their collective energy, creativity and vision to the table to analyse, discuss and generate ideas and solutions to selected urban enclaves.
YPLAB2016 aims to be a platform for the young people to express their creative ideas and thoughts in achieving a livable and sustainable built environment.
YPLAB2016 is part of a broader initiative in reaching out to the young people – giving them opportunity and hope for a better future. The participants will be analyzing, discussing and submitting ideas on the role of youth in regenerating the urban fabric and the outcomes will be presented by the winning team/youth representative in the 8th WCSC Conference 2016.
YPLAB2016 is co-organised by the Youth Committees of Pertubuhan Akitek Malaysia (PAM), Malaysian Institute of Planners (MIP), Institute of Engineers Malaysia (IEM), Real Estate & Housing Developers’ Association (REHDA) and supported by Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL).
