AESOP aims to achieve its goals through the organization of an heterogeneous set of events:
  • AESOP Annual Congress, focussing on European, national, regional and local spatial planning issues;
  • Annual AESOP Heads of Schools Meeting, discussing planning education and curricula related issues;
  • Annual AESOP PhD Workshop, usually preceeding the annual congress and fostering interaction and learning among Ph.D. Candidates focussing on planning related issues;
  • European Urban Summer School, aiming to bring together young professionals and experienced academics and practitioners from across Europe to discuss relevant planning issues.
  • AESOP-IFHP Lecture Series 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. And celebrate AESOP Silver Jubilee (2012) and IFHP Centenary (2013).
