Planning for People: Mumbai then and Now

On a walk through the Dadar Parsi and Hindu Colonies in central Mumbai, India, participants will be encouraged to observe and interpret the reasons why these areas have, for the past century, been considered amongst the city's best planned neighbourhoods for people. We will also confront the almost overwhelming, rampant urban development that is eroding neighbourhoods, and changing lifestyles, across Mumbai, today. Our walk, observations and discussions will be guided by the enduring cues and thoughts of Jane Jacobs, on the health of cities everywhere.
