Monday 10 January 2022, the Urban and Regional Planning Community held the first Urban Research and Innovation Forum (URIF) seminar series 2022. URIF 2022 #1 raised the topic “Planning Indonesian Cities: Inclusion, Innovation, and Disruption” ahead of the implementation of the World Planning School Congress and APSA Congress in Bali on August 29 – September 2, 2022. This seminar is a collaboration with ASPI Indonesia as the main organizer of the WPSC-APSA Congress.
The discussion began with a presentation from Prof Iwan Rudianto, the chairman of ASPI conveying several important points related to the implementation of the WPSC-APSA Congress. Prof. Haryo Winarso also explained the topics that will be raised at the WPSC-APSA, the disruption phenomenon that is being experienced in Indonesia due to the pandemic, the digital economy, and on-demand services. The panelists took turns providing comments and input related to the implementation of the WPSC-APSA Congress, starting with Prof. Christopher Silver, Prof. Deden Rukmana, Dr. Leksono Probosubanu, Dr. Sani Roychansyah, Prof. Imam Buchori, Dr. Tubagus Furqon, Ary Syamsura, Bob Neille, Harmen van de Wal, Sonia Roitman, Dr. Bernd Gutter, and Prof. Manfredo.
Several panelists also provided several exposure materials related to topics that would later become themes and sub-themes at the congress. Attended by 532 participants who joined through the Zoom Meeting and Youtube Live platforms, URIF’s inaugural seminar in 2022 went smoothly. It is hoped that all participants of this seminar can enliven the World Planning School Congress – APSA Congress both in person in Bali and virtually.
