On 13 April 2017, students of Urban and Regional Planning Department, Diponegoro University invited several stakeholder groups to join a Focus Group Discussion being held in their campus building. Representatives from Semarang City Government, District and Sub-district officials, neighborhood leaders, and community groups were invited to the discussion. The idea was for the students to share the findings and initial design concept with the forum and receive inputs or feedback from the participants.
ACCCRN is collaborating to bring the concept of inclusive urban climate change resilience to the students in university. Because we believe that our future leaders must know about the concept of inclusive urban resilience, so the poor and vulnerable will be served better.

For the second time, ACCCRN and Diponegoro University are collaborating through the ACCCRN Youth Program. In this semester, the 3rd year students of Urban and Regional Planning Department are taking a studio class for urban design and development with focuses on waterfront settlement in Semarang City. ACCCRN is once again trying to promote inclusiveness and resilience thinking within the planning process.
Following classroom lectures and field observation activities, students at the Urban and Regional Planning Department, Diponegoro University, finished their Planning Studio final assignment in December 2016. As part of the Youth Program, ACCCRN visited the final presentation session and joined the discussion with all students and lecturers.
ACCCRN and Diponegoro University are collaborating to bring the concept of inclusive urban climate change resilience to its campus. It is interesting to see how this concept can be applied to urban planning, especially form the perspective of those who will be the occupants of a city in the future. It is also possible to assume that the planning will also consider another value such as interconnectivity with related areas (beyond a city’s boundary).
