Intramuros Learning Sessions episode no. 52


The webinar is organized by the Royal Danish Embassy Manila and in partnership with the Intramuros Administration. The purpose of the 1st session is to enable people to take control over one’s health & well-being by guiding them to take meaningful, climate conscious decisions within their daily lives through a people-centred approach to architecture and the environment. Due to the periodic lockdowns brought by COVI D-19, one of the key issues the Philippines is now facing is the overwhelming need for economic recovery. One of the greater things that have come of transportation. Combined with efficient infrastructure and policy, bicycles have the potential to spur economic recovery. Tourism is one of the biggest industries in the Philippines and is also one that is badly hit by the pandemic. For session two the objective is to provide Intramuros, its stakeholders and our audience with the proper tools, knowledge in bicycle tourism and its potential positive economic impact for the short and long-term.

  • Guest speakers: Jan Gehl and Jesper Pørksen
