Pacific Rim Community Design Network

Working Conferences: Launched in 1998, the Pacific Rim Community Design Network brings together community design scholars and practitioners from countries around the Pacific Rim through its regular conferences. Through conferences and joint projects, the network has provided a vehicle for collaboration and mutual support, as well as a forum for a comparative understanding of community design in the fast-changing political and social context of the Pacific Rim. Network members now span from Asia-Pacific to North America, in countries including Australia, Canada, China, Indonesia, Japan, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and the United States.
