The consultation programme has been designed with several principles in mind:
- Maximize collaborative working time. The consultation has been designed to maximize the time for participants to work closely with each other in small group discussions. This will facilitate optimal information exchange and network experience.
- Harnessing Collective Insight. The participants are experts in each of the topic areas. The design of the programme has aimed to harness the collective intelligence and experience of the participants in order to produce new insights and perspectives about the future of urban living.
