GREEN COMMUNITY DESIGN
The 8th Conference of the Pacific Rim Community Design Network
Seoul National University, August 22-24, 2012
City greening has become a common effort to enhance the quality of life and to mitigate the negative aspects of contemporary urban condition. From urban gardening to urban agriculture, working with people is a basic premise in planning and design in diverse fields. Moreover, the word "green" does not mean just as green space and design. It also implies the sustainable mode of life and value system in the age of climate change. As such, green community design suggests a new direction to embrace current changes in diverse areas such as placemaking, open space planning, urban design, etc. We will have an open platform to share the knowledge and experiences on these issues. Diverse cases and different stories concerning cities, green policy, community participation, and partnership are welcomed. The conference will be held in Seoul, Korea. Recently, the tendency toward development-oriented planning has begun to be challenged here. Caring for residents and respecting for existing urban ecology has become a top agenda in urban policy. It is time that all members in Pacific Rim Community Design Network come to visit Seoul and discuss our future together.
