Join Asia Society in partnership with the IBEAR MBA Program at the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business at the 5th Annual Pacific Cities Sustainability Initiative (PCSI) Forum, “Imagine 2060: Delivering Tomorrow’s Cities Together”, as we explore the intersection of water with health and wellbeing, economic development, culture and identity, mobility and technology to build connected, prosperous and sustainably competitive cities. Imagine 2060 is an original 3-year global discourse series co-organized by Asia Society and AECOM, aimed at inspiring a whole new way of delivering the cities of tomorrow. In Los Angeles, we will examine its place among the world’s great megacities as an economic and cultural hub, in particular its role as a ocean’s edge city, and how cities in Asia can provide new, innovative ideas for Los Angeles in the coming decades.

The Asia-Pacific region is in the midst of an urban waterfront building boom and has been seeking to revive their historic port cities in the last decade. Port cities in the U.S. such as San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles have been dedicated in investing to revitalize and improve their local economy through sustainable development. Sustainable development of the waterfront can be a vital part of the solutions to motivate the eco-system of city stakeholders, such as municipal governments, business leaders, and community representatives, to think ahead and achieve more holistically planned cities which are connected, resilient and sustainably competitive.

Founded in 2009, the Pacific Cities Sustainability Initiative (PCSI) aims to foster cross-disciplinary dialogue amongst an international network of business leaders, government officials, academic researchers, and the public who are committed to facilitating sustainable development in the Pacific Rim.
