Seoul and Singapore are rapidly ageing societies. Over the years, both cities have introduced comprehensive policies and initiatives to prepare themselves for a rapidly ageing population, encompassing infrastructure improvements, care and healthcare services and senior friendly housing options. The Centre for Liveable Cities (CLC) and the Seoul Institute (SI) are collaborating on a joint research project on “Age Friendly Cities: Lessons from Seoul and Singapore”, to examine the efforts by both cities in planning for an ageing population and discuss the challenges going forward.

As part of the collaborative research process and in conjunction with the World Cities Summit 2018, CLC and SI have put together a panel discussion with experts from Seoul and Singapore. Joining this panel is also Mayor of New Taipei City, who will share insights on New Taipei City’s initiatives for an age-friendly city. The panel will be moderated by environmental gerontologist and Founder of Ibasho, Dr Emi Kiyota. She will also share the relevant experiences of the three cities and distil common lessons in planning for age-friendly cities.
