For centuries Ningbo is one of the busiest trading ports and serves today as the second Chinese harbour after Shanghai. Today and in the coming decades, Ningbo is one of the key cities in the ‘One Belt, One Road’ initiative that will boast international trade and cultural exchange.
The Ningbo Urban Planning en Design Institute (NBPI) has invited ISOCARP to select a team of experts that will assist the NBPI in their visioning process for the new identity and urban renovation of Ningbo’s Xinmalu Historical District. The ambition of NBPI is that Xinmalu Historical District becomes an example of urban renovation and ecological restoration that combines the restoration of urban functions, the improvement of living conditions and that utilizes potential spatial, social, cultural, ecological and economic values.
The UPAT Team will comprise a total of eight ISOCARP members: the Team Leader, the UPAT Rapporteur, total four senior and young planning professionals, the UPAT Program Coordinator and the Vice President UPATs. This Team will closely work together with a team of planning professionals from NBPI. All team members will write, illustrate and contribute to a dedicated PLAN Magazine that will be presented at the 54th ISOCARP congress in Bodø, Norway, 01-05 October 2018.
