The Lee Kuan Yew Centre for Innovative Cities launched “The Future of Cities” program in November 2014 with seven studies. Funded by the National Research Foundation and the Ministry of National Development, these studies examine the opportunities and challenges for Singapore over the next twenty-five years in seven areas:

Future of Cities Phase I

  • Future Economy
  • Future Society – Imagining the New Diversity (funded by National Population and Talent Division)
  • Data Economy
  • Future Transportation
  • Future Urban Typologies for Enhancing Liveability in Singapore
  • Sustainable Futures
  • Living with Technology – Future of Work, Education, and Healthcare

Future of Cities Phase II

  • Future Digital Economies and Societies (builds on Living with Technology work)

These projects are designed to contribute to a deeper understanding of Singapore’s economy and society, how Singapore can tackle technology disruption and transformation, and how Singapore can continue to be liveable and sustainable.
