17 MIT graduate students traveled in January with MIT faculty, doctoral students and visiting scholars from the Global South to multiple cities in Malaysia. Students worked with Malaysian university and community partners to investigate (1) how Malaysia is trying to shape low-carbon city development in sustainable ways; (2) how stakeholders and the public-at-large participate in infrastructure and development planning decisions; (3) how urban design and development can preserve indigenous and traditional values and lifestyles; and (4) how private development interests can proceed with large-scale real estate projects in socially-responsible ways. Under the counsel of MIT faculty, practicum participants formulated a new Research Agenda that offers guidance to visiting scholars who want to help the MIT-UTM Malaysia Sustainable Cities Program continue its work.
