Activistar 青年市长城市规划竞赛 (2011-2016)

根据联合国人民署调查分析指出,欠发达国家的城市地区人口将在2030年由2000年的19亿增至39亿。居民数的大幅增加将对现有的基础构架带来压力,使生活状况更加艰难和恶劣,造成有碍健康的环境,成立更多贫民区和灾难多发区。无规划的、肆意放纵的、不协调的城市发展所带来的危害是真实的,并且正在向很多城市逼近。所以管理城市化对政策决策者们来说相当重要并且紧急,因为这些就真真实实的发生在实施高效的土地管理中、提供可靠平价的基础服务解决办法、教育、住房供给、交通、健康。一个充满活力的未来是需要大家共同的努力才能得来的。


Activistar Advocacy 相信我们可以开始通过对可持续性发展的教育和培训,打造可持续发展思想家,激励创新者,鼓舞未来实践者。本次城市规划设计竞赛将促使参与者了解发展中国家在快速城市化的压力下,因为城市居民数和移民数的增加,现目前正在经历和面临的挑战和将来即将面临的挑战。他们将感激相关政府部门和领导在管理城市发展和规划互通宗旨上所作出的努力。


此次国际城镇规划竞赛-年轻市长竞赛-旨在发掘培养可持续性未来的青年领导者。

Activistar的第一个五国集成系列(2011-2016)包括:越南河内、马来西亚依斯干达、缅甸仰光、菲律宾马尼拉、印尼雅加达。这些城市都是贸易集中地带、历史意义重要地区、政治遗产中心并在所处历史时期处重要地位。Activistar的第二个五国集成系列将著于2017年,从柬埔寨金边开始,将涉及东南亚的其他国家并且呈现一个崭新的面貌。

Assembly (2017) : The Rising Series

Activistar's first Assembly Series of 5 cities (2011-2016) features Hanoi, Iskandar Malaysia, Yangon, Manila and Jakarta. These are populous epicentres of commerce, of historical significance, hold political legacies and significant in their own period. 

The second Assembly Series of the next 5 cities begins with Phnom Penh (2017), and will offer all participants a fresh look of South East Asia.

The new Phnom Penh Masterplan (since 1954) presents much opportunity for commerce and economic revitalisation. Formerly the Paris of the East, the city has previously degenerated into the dark ages of civil war, political unrest and revolution, literally wiping out much of it's Indochina legacy. Nonetheless, there is a resurgence in optimism and enterprise, judging by the new gleaming and still climbing residential towers on Diamond Island, new airport terminal, road improvements and more. Phnom Penh still has it's fair share of bullet scarred art deco buildings, old markets and heritage districts.  Phnom Penh is not a sprawling metropolis, it is easy to orientate and has a compact low-rise/high-density urban plan. Somehow, it's intersections, roundabouts and arterial road system conjure up a tight urban fabric - creating a very balanced scale. It is a city to be experienced at the human scale, it is safer than western cities at night and it is definitely Rising!
