Integrated Planning for Towns and Cities Future 2015 September Perth
“Toward Sustainable and Integrated Development Initiatives”
The title for this 3rd, in a series of, international conferences, “Toward Sustainable and Integrated Planning for liveable Cities” reflects a major challenge
facing humanity and cities - achieving global sustainability.
The International Advisory committee considers the recent world-class work toward achieving sustainable cities is both significant and compelling; consequently
we are keen now to contribute to the dialogue that this event will initiate. The conference will be a truly international event, 2015.
The 3NUST 2015 will provide an opportunity for national and international experts, government agencies, industry professionals and academics to
discuss innovation in urban planning, development and transport; leading to creative urban centres, and more sustainable cities and communities. The event
will bring together, participants from around the world, including the United Nations and other International organistions, with a focus on the destination country.
Following the success of the 2nd New Urbanism and Smart Transport International Conference in Kuala Lumpur, we have chosen to hold the 3NUST “Toward Sustainable and Integrated Planning for liveable Cities” in 2015, in the belief that participants may find inspiration from this most livable of cities. Among the “success stories” to be presented will be that of country that restoring quality of livability and human scale to the area, and setting the theme for achieving sustainable integration. An introductory session will be devoted to this city; that despite its changing fortunes, has never relinquished its human contentedness and its exuberant love of life.
Adding to this, destination city is located within one of the world’s fastest growing regions, making the message of sustainable, integrated development and transport innovative all the more compelling.
Urban Planning - Transport Transformation - Urban Design - New Urbanism- Sustainable Growth - Development - Transforming Cities - Integration
The 3rd New Urbanism and Smart Transport International Conference will examine the challenges, opportunities, trends and issues currently
facing sector professionals. Delegates and presenters will examine how to plan for Integrated, Liveable Cities, Sustainable Cities and Transformative Cities
3NUST offers a place to discuss how cities can drive a transition towards sustainability in the face of the current economic, environmental and social crises. As global policy processes have largely failed to put the world on the track to sustainability, hopes are increasingly placed on local and regional factors.
Fast-growing cities are causing both positive and negative changes for its residents traffic congestion and high-priced property are some of the challenges of city-living.
The integration of urban planning and design with transit oriented development is seen as one-way towards developing more livable cities.
Following the success of the unique and the only International forum for the mix of urban design and transport people worked together at the 2012 September 26 & 27 “New Urbanism and Smart Transport" International Conference.
The 2013 City futures and Transport innovation will be a platform for debate between architects, planners,transport, policy-makers, developers, academics, journalists, and urban enthusiasts over issues related to urban planning, development, design and transport.
How do you link transport planning with urban and human settlement planning? How do you coordinate all modes of transport during planning? What is its relationship with regional or national planning for cities?
These are some of the questions answered by Architects, transport, engineers, developers and urban planners and many others still have much to learn from the incomparable organisation of community urban spaces, its network of pedestrian streets and lanes, and its compact legible human scale. The governments expertise’s, directors, city mayors, councillors and managers could study no city that offers its residents a better quality of life, ease and pleasure in shopping and marketing, in business and commuting; a city that has maintained a stable economy, a city that offers stimulation, delight and surprise without stress. Urban space animators and activators could find no city as inexhaustibly imaginative in its production of events, festivals, concerts, performances, processions and more; it’s ability to capitalise on the amazing natural resource that is it’s beaches.
Based on the success of the 2011 New Urbanism & Smart Transport International Conference in Perth, Australia it is expected that the CFTI 2013 conference will attract over 550 delegates from a wide range of international and national academic, professionals, government organisations and more..
This International event in a series of International Road Safety Conferences(RSIC) convened by Smart Vision International to assist in disseminating up-to-the-minute research, concepts and ideas to road safety professionals. Of particular interest to the conference conveners is the ability of these conferences to provide professionals in the developing world with direct access to world renowned road safety practitioners with a view to circumventing the time lag in reading journals and the like. The face time provided at these conferences facilitates opportunities for candid and direct responses to the essential questions that would otherwise go unanswered.
Additionally, this direct contact provides increased networking opportunities to ensure that road safety professionals from all countries have the broadest possible base of information and the ability to simply email or phone an expert when they need advice.
Experience has indicated that these conferences have the ability to provide significant legacies for the host country in terms of reduced road crash trauma, improved road safety through the application of initiatives discussed at the conference and the development of a valuable relationship with Smart Vision International who can facilitate additional, follow-on workshops and seminars.
• Identify effective and practical solutions for improving road infrastructure safety
• Develop national and regional consistency in road safety standards and policies
• Share road safety challenges and experience internationally
• Produce action resolutions at local government, provincial, national and international levels
Conference Themes (engineering):
• Crash and injury data collection, management and analysis
• Road safety audit and network risk assessment
• Standardisation of signs and markings and other traffic management devices
• Major injury crash types and road safety treatments
• Safe infrastructure for vulnerable road users
• Road hierarchies, safe speed limits and traffic calming
• Road safety indicators, monitoring and evaluation
• Costing road safety investments and benefits
• Safe system management
In considering the influence of the conference it is essential to consider both the professional development and networking opportunities that it creates, and, the longer-term legacies that it can contribute to for the country as a whole.
RSIC International Conference Structure
In an effort to maximise the benefits to and to optimise the legacies produced it is suggested that the conference and associated events should include:
• Pre-Conference Site Inspection for Keynote speakers (optional);
• Opening Night Gala Dinner and awards ceremony;
The content of this conference has the potential to be tailored to suit the specific needs of the chosen host nation. Conceptually, the conference will be a 2-day:
Program (2 days):
- Day 1 - After the welcoming ceremony and opening by the patron a keynote will be delivered, followed by three concurrent sessions with three - five streams (depending on the number of papers submitted). A second keynote could be scheduled after lunch. Note that an invitation-only round-table session would be conducted during one of the concurrent sessions. This would involve leading delegates from countries discussing 3-4 case studies. (if more than 3 the time of 2 concurrent sessions may be needed.)
- Day 2 – A third keynote would commence the second day. This would be followed by another 2 concurrent sessions. If a fourth keynote is agreed, this keynote could speak after lunch on the second day. This would be followed by a concurrent set of workshops to draw together the major findings from conference on the top five themes. A panel of the workshop leaders would then present summaries and proposed resolutions to final plenary session and comments from delegates would be welcomed before finalising a communiqué from the conference.
- 1/2-day, by-Invitation, roundtable for the rigion key stakeholders;
Subject to sufficient funding being available the possibility of a closing night events could also be considered for members of the roundtable team.
1. Organising committee – Chaired by local high profile leader and the laeding expert (national and international), including the RSIC International Advisors
2. Scientific committee – Chaired by a leading expert in road safety
Call for papers:
The conference could encourage scientific papers for peer review and practitioner papers for non-peer review acceptance.
Patron and Keynote Speakers:
Organisers should arrange for a highly respected, high profile leader to open the Conference.
Keynote speakers should be selected on the basis of most knowledgeable on the three to four highest priority topics.
The RSIC to be considered could include:
The conference will be designed to target both road safety, transport and land use professionals. Its primary audience is likely to include:
- Creating safer road environments within a limited budget;
- Improving pedestrian safety in developing countries;
- Reducing the severity of road crashes;
- Licencing and registration issues (non-licences drivers and unregistered vehicles);
- Over-crowding on medium-size passenger vehicles.
- The conference will also seek to integrate with the United Nations’ designated “Decade of Action for Road Safety” by examining the creative process associated with road and vehicle safety policies, now and the future
- Government road safety policy-makers;
- Local government officials;
- Provincial and state governments representatives and professional officers;
- Road and transport associations;
- Infrastructure financiers Road safety advocates and NGOs;
- Transport and communications professionals;
- Social and behavioural scientists
- Enforcement agencies;
- University researchers;
- Public works agencies.
- Injury prevention practitioners
Focussing on road infrastructure safety will enable more concentration of effort to specific road safety problems and solutions. If the themes were broadened to vehicle and behavioural road safety, it would be more challenging to agree on a set of specific tangible conference resolutions.
