Urbanization is often seen as disruptive to the built environment as well as social, cultural, and economic life in historic cities. What are the strategies and tools that could address these challenges at civil society and governmental levels? Using George Town, Penang as a backdrop, this three-day workshop brings delegates from Japan, Thailand, Cambodia, and Malaysia to exchange best practices and lessons learned.
