In the post-pandemic era, public sector and urban planners are trying to depict each city’s unique characteristics, thinking about integrating a design mindset within city governance. By channeling a city’s strength into appropriate planning, we can improve a city’s living standards and increase people’s welfare and quality of life. In the 2020, cities that were initially caught by surprise by the pandemic are gradually regaining their pace of life and industries are experiencing recovery.

This forum focuses on the relationship between cities and design, as well as future trends of city governance. The experts from Taiwan and abroad show how design can change the landscape of city, and revitalizes the entire city.
