AESOP Lecture Series

AESOP-IFHP LECTURE SERIES 2012-2013
From Cities of To-morrow to a Tomorrow for Cities
The Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP) and the International Federation for Housing and Planning (IFHP) have launched a joint activity within the framework of the Decade of Planning (more about Decade of Planning): a series of lectures in 2012-2013 by well-known planners and other ‘urban thinkers’, both academics and practitioners. The idea is to attract not only the planning community but also a wider audience of politicians, community leaders and organizations, business and the media to promote planning as a discipline that can contribute to the quality of life, help find new tools of governance of the urban structures and function as an effective mediator between the many stakeholders.  
The aim is to find possible answers to present-day and emerging challenges that face planning and planners as a modern discipline in a new role in our contemporary complex and dynamic society. Big name speakers will attract media attention and give us the possibility of presenting planning in more positive, constructive and attractive way.  
The first two years of lectures will form part of the activities being organised within the framework of both the Silver Jubilee of AESOP (2012) and the Centenary of IFHP (2013).


AESOP-ERSA LECTURE SERIES 2014
The Lecture Series does have great potential to be continued as an on-going feature of the Decade of Planning beyond AESOP's Silver Jubilee and IFHP’s Centenary Year.

The connecting element running through the whole series is for the speakers to fill in on aspects of a new vision for planning by taking lessons from the past. Of course, each lecture will be following by a discussion with the audience led by a professional moderator.


In 2014 our partner organisation European Regional Sciences Association (ERSA) decided to join our Lecture Series. We are delighted to announce the first exceptional event under our auspices in Vienna, on 19-23 May 2014.
