How can we improve the liveability of cities in a time of increasing urban density?

Quality of life – is not measured in just one aspect of urban living – from how long a person spends finding a parking lot, to how efficiently are resources being used? Many of these areas can be addressed using smart cities technology. When cities are of higher density, it is more pedestrian-friendly and transportation is more accessible, however, the problem occurs when there is no smart growth planning, and it will ultimately become unsustainable. McKinsey reported that smart city technologies can tremendously improve the quality of life of residents by a notable amount.​

How can we create environments that facilitate healthy lifestyles in a rapidly urbanised society?

Nearly all the top ten leading causes of deaths worldwide are preventable or diminished through healthy lifestyle practices and safe living conditions, including cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease, and diabetes. In accommodating for a growing urban population and changing shifts in lifestyles, urbanisation may have inadvertently introduced new health risks and hazards through promoting unhealthy habits, pollution, and poor urban planning. Health-promoting environments and health literacy in urban communities are vital in achieving an overall goal of developed cities driven by healthy and happy citizens. 

How can we better utilise resources to effectively manage and reduce food wastage? 

Globally, a third of all available food, about 1.3 billion tonnes, is wasted every year with Malaysia contributing up to 16, 667 tonnes of food waste daily. This starkly contrasts the reality that 1 in 3 people are still malnourished and one in nine people face chronic hunger worldwide. The implications of food wastage run deeper than throwing out leftovers – natural resources such as water, soil, seeds, that went into its production is also wasted. At a waste management level, food that is thrown away into landfills decompose and release methane, a greenhouse gas more potent than carbon dioxide.
