The COVID-19 pandemic has profoundly affected people’s lives in a way that seems to interrupt the world development. It had infected nearly 148 million people worldwide and killed more than 3.12 million until April 2021, and posed a serious challenge to human health. Moreover, the pandemic caused the largest global recession in history, with more than a third of the global population at the time being placed on lockdown. The lockdowns in response to COVID-19 have interrupted conventional teaching and research actives, we have to stay at home and communicate through the new modes.
Asian Institute of Urban Environment (AIUE) also had to suspend on-side conference in 2020 to deal with the unexpected impact of the COVID-19. However, it is awesome that the pandemic has not dampened the enthusiasm of our members and researchers. We received more than 100 articles, and the virtual conference was successfully held in December 2020. The participation and support of researchers and members has created the new opportunities for the 17th International Conference of Asian Institute of Urban Environment (AIUE2020). Therefore, we decided to continue to hold the conference this year and try to hold it offline, to create a chance that mainly exchanges ideas and the recent researches about urban environment planning and sharing solution for better daily living.
We welcome you and your colleges attend our AIUE2021.
With a rapid urbanization in Asia, the importance of understanding the relationship between the changing urban environment and the quality of life within the city is being increasingly recognized. The experience of developed cities shows that most cities have been coping with phenomena such as rural-urban migration, expansive urban sprawl with massive consequences for the sustainability of the city and its community resulting in land area problems within the rural-urban fringe among the most common ones. In this era of rapidly changing urban environment, society and human value in Asia, the future state of Asian cities will be a matter of utmost importance, Asian cities seeking for safe and secure lifestyle and urban development.
Asian Institute of Urban Environment (AIUE) is academic-based organization made as a network of students, researchers, and universities especially in Asia to enhance their knowledge in their fields of study or works which is related to the urban environment.
In this organization, we try to explore the emergence of innovative ideas and practices within the context of international urban environment planning and architecture issues. The aim of Asian Institute of Urban Environment (AIUE) is to create an organization that mainly exchanges ideas and the recent researches about urban environment planning and sharing solution for better daily living through the scheduled programs, periodically events and open forum, among students and professionals in Asia.
We expect to deepen discussions among foreign researchers on the scheme of preservation of the urban environment and sustainability, as well as challenging a strategy of the urban environment in order to realize sustainable cities wherein we can continue to live within our sustainable communities.
