As Singapore enters its 50th year of independence, it is a time for introspection to look back at the successes and challenges of the past, but is also a crucial time to consider what the future holds for the nation. Singapore 2065: Leading Insights on Economy and Environment from 50 Singapore Icons and Beyond is one such key contribution to the endeavour of thinking about what lies ahead. While many forthcoming projects and books take a more retrospective approach reflecting upon Singapore's past, this book adopts a forward-looking perspective, contemplating Singapore's distant future, which is important for posterity. This book is a collection of key insights from 50 iconic individuals of Singapore and beyond, and contains reasoned arguments, speculations and visionary expectations of Singapore's future in 50 years' time. The book discusses the distant future of Singapore's economy and the environment. What will Singapore's economic and environment landscape be like 50 years from now? Are there trends or scenarios common to the various discussions contained in this book? If there are, how big would be the impact of some of these trends? What and how should the government respond to these projections, expectations and informed visions of tomorrow? In sum, what would Singapore's economy and environment be like in 2065? The book explores a range of possible answers to these questions and more. Not only will the generations of today be able to gain much insight into Singapore's future by reading this book, but future generations, specifically 100 years after Singapore's independence, will be able to understand and affirm what and how today's generations think about their time. The book is a key contribution to envisioning Singapore's future, which is also vital for understanding what shapes Singapore's landscape today. Contents: --> Readership: Educational institutions of higher levels; research institutions; various professional societies; the Singapore government and ministries; foreign governments; and general readers who are interested in finding out more about what leaders in Singapore envision for Singapore's future. Key Features:Contains contributed essays by very prominent Singapore icons, and edited by a leading and influential academic economistContains futuristic, leading insights and predictions, novel ideas, covering a wide range of topicsTimely publication to coincide with and celebrate Singapore's 50th anniversary of independenceKeywords:Singapore's Future;Economy;Environment;Transportation;Quality of Life;Energy;Demographics;Aging;Social Security;Income Inequality;Family;Technology;Public Finance;Finance;Taxes;Gender and Women;Trade;Geopolitical and Political Economy;Infrastructure;Resources;Connectivity;ASEAN;China;SEAReview: "A stunning collection of perspectives across the spectrum, Singapore 2065 presents a compelling look into the future through a series of thought provoking insights. This volume also celebrates the country's exceptional success, retelling the invaluable stories and anecdotes that have paved Singapore's tremendous journey over the last 50 years. As Singapore continues to chart into the next half century, Singapore 2065 leaves plenty to ponder and will remain a valuable repository of knowledge for many years to come." Bertil Andersson President Nanyang Technological University "Singapore 2065 has brought together a diverse and intriguing range of ideas and insights from a rich cross-section of contributors: policy makers, researchers, close observers of Singapore, student leaders, and others. These essays reflect on Singapore's remarkable progress and development over the past half-century, and explore the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead. Over the next 50 years, the world will continue to be an uncertain place, offering exciting opportunities, but subject to bouts of deep uncertainty and disruptive events and trends. Ultimately, Singapore's continued success over the next 50 years will depend less on our material resources, but on our people, and specifically our key attributes of nimbleness, adaptability, creativity, resilience and the willingness to strive for a common purpose." Tan Chorh Chuan President National University of Singapore "Singapore's success came in large part from its continuous efforts to anticipate what changes are likely, not often looking as far as ahead as 50 years ahead, but certainly not afraid to try. Here are 50 minds stretching forward into the 21st century — confirming that the city-state's spirit lives on. I am confident that our environment will have a better future thanks to the projections in this volume. Everyone who cares should read and think about them." Wang Gungwu Chairman East Asian Institute, National University of Singapore "There are few issues that are more important than the economy and the environment in the 21st century for any country. They are especially important to Singapore, given its size and open economy. As the nation celebrates its 50th birthday, justifiably proud of its achievement, it is also timely to contemplate what the future might hold and what we need to do to ensure continued success as a nation. In Singapore 2065, you will find food for thought. What is of particular interest is that the deeply thoughtful essays collected in this volume crisscross at different points, and also raise a number of fundamental issues concerning value and identity that are inextricably tied to Singapore's future development. This book certainly provides keen insight into the economic and environmental challenges we face, but it also compels us to reflect on the larger story of "Majulah Singapura" as we march into the future." Alan K L Chan Dean, College of Humanities, Arts & Social Sciences Nanyang Technological University

The bicycle is fast becoming a ubiquitous form of transportation in cities all over the world, making our urban spaces more efficient, more livable and healthier. But many of those bicycles disappear into basements and garages when the warm months end, parked there by owners fearful of the cold, snow and ice that winter brings. But does it have to be that way? Canadian writer and journalist Tom Babin started questioning this dogma after being stuck in winter commuter traffic one dreary and cold December morning and dreaming about the happiness that bicycle commuting had brought him all summer long. So he did something about it. He pulled on some thermal underwear, dragged his bike down from the rafters of his garage and set out on a mission to answer a simple but beguiling question: is it possible to happily ride a bike in winter? That question took him places he never expected. Over years of trial and error, research and more than his share of snow and ice, he discovered an unknown history of biking for snow and ice, and a new generation designed to make riding in winter safe and fun. He unearthed the world's most bike-friendly winter city and some new approaches to winter cycling from places all over the world. He also looked inward, to discover how the modern world shapes our attitudes toward winter. And perhaps most importantly, he discovered the unique kind of bliss that can only come by pedalling through softly falling snow on a quiet winter night.

In Bike Boom, journalist Carlton Reid uses history to shine a spotlight on the present and demonstrates how bicycling has the potential to grow even further, if the right measures are put in place by the politicians and planners of today and tomorrow. He explores the benefits and challenges of cycling, the roles of infrastructure and advocacy, and what we can learn from cities that have successfully supported and encouraged bike booms. In this entertaining and thought-provoking book, Reid sets out to discover what we can learn from the history of bike "booms."

This book explores the understanding, description, and measurement of the physical, sensory, social, and emotional features of motorcycle and bicycle journey experiences in tourism. Novel insights are presented from an original case study of these forms of tourism in the Sella Pass, a panoramic road close to the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site. A comprehensive mixed-methods strategy was employed for this research, with concurrent use of quantitative and qualitative methods including documentation and secondary data analysis, mobile video ethnography, and emotion measurement. The aim was to create a holistic knowledge of the features of journey experiences and a new definition of the mobility space as a perceptual space. The book is significant in that it is among the first studies to explore the concept of journey experiences and to develop an interdisciplinary theoretical foundation of mobility spaces. It offers a comprehensive understanding and a benchmarking of the features of motorcycling and cycling journey experiences, a deeper market knowledge on motorcycling and cycling tourists, and a set of tools, techniques, and recommendations for future research on tourist experiences.

The fifth book in the series of eight UK regional cycling guides from author Simon Warren takes readers (and their bikes) to the shores and skylines of South-West England. Plot a route between any two points in this region and its profile is likely to resemble an upturned saw blade – together, the Cotswolds, the Mendips and the exquisite Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks form a perfect hill climber’s playground. In quiet Cornish fishing villages, on top of Bodmin Moor and cresting the Salisbury Plain are legions of punishingly beautiful roads eager to meet their cycling match, and the very best are between these pages. With a list including the dramatic Cheddar Gorge, Gold Hill, Haytor Vale and the fearsome Porlock, this region is one to relish.
