Planning Beyond Limits - Building Liveable Communities

Young Planning Professionals' Workshop
organised as part of the 55th ISOCARP World Planning Congress
JAKARTA-BOGOR, INDONESIA, 4-8 September 2019

For over two decades, ISOCARP has been leading International Young Planning Professionals' (YPP) Workshops - traditionally organised prior to annual congresses, to provide young planning professionals an opportunity to work in a multi-cultural setting, share their experiences on real-life planning problems, and exchange ideas and learn from each other as well as from senior colleagues. The YPP Program is a crucial component of ISOCARP's dedication to promote and enhance the planning profession and commitment to facilitate knowledge for better cities with the young generations.

According to this tradition, the YPP workshop will be offered again this year during the 55th ISOCARP World Planning Congress, Jakarta-Bogor, Indonesia. This workshop will focus on handling the condition of liveable, accessible and mobile communities in two specific areas in Jakarta and Bogor.

The first case study area will be the transit-oriented development (TOD) area at the Dukuh Atas. This very central location in Jakarta is the first transit area built by the DKI Jakarta Government. Located at the intersection of three major transport nodes, surrounded by office and retail buildings, it is expected to be further equipped with various mass transportation and become an interconnected place between diverse transportation nodes and a pedestrian friendly urban environment. The second case study area will be the Chinatown district in Bogor, known as Julan Suryakencana. Along this streetscape, strongly developed as commercial street, different ethnics, languages and cultures meet. The challenge will be how to rethink an integrated urban and landscape design able to balance revitalization and conservation, while fostering economic development, sustainability and a renewed liveability for the local communities. These case study areas will offer the potential to rethink liveability in Jakarta and Bogor, with a special attention to mobility, in accordance to connectivity, diversity, quality, accessibility, mobility, sustainability and resilience.

The selection of the team of international participants has been completed. The workshop will be supported by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Young Planners Group, Bandung Institute of Technology, Universitas Tarumanagara, and Malaysian Institute of Planners (MIP).
