Curator Global Shapers Islamabad Hub, Javeria Masood jointly in collaboration with the Ministry of Planning, Development and Reforms, Pakistan, organized a dialogue of thinkers and doers of Pakistan that are actively shaping our communities. The event facilitated a productive discourse between varied stakeholders of our city, to collectively comprehend, imagine and strategically envision and design the future.
Under the theme of ‘Re-imagining the Cities of Future’, Global Shapers Islamabad hub has been selected as the four cities participating in the Annual Meeting in Davos through a live virtual session. The segment of our participation is called Shaping Davos where we will be bringing the perspective of Islamabad to a Global audience.
The local session held today at the auditorium of Planning Commission brought together the local community representatives, policy makers, political and business leaders, architects, planners, designers, non-profit organisations, tech enthusiasts, journalists, etc. A debrief of this will later be virtually shared at the Davos Summit.
The program had two major components, one is a break-out session where we in smaller but varied and rich groups collectively envisioned a better and smarter city. This lead into he second component where we will come as one group and share our propositions, strategies, insights and questions from the first part in a round table conference.
The sessions were convened by Javeria Masood (curator Global Shapers), Malik Ahmad Khan (member infrastructure and regional connectivity) and Chowdhry Anwar (chief Physical Planning and Housing).
