European Urban Summer School

European Urban Summer School (EUSS)
for young planning professionals

 

In 2010 AESOP launched a new annual event: the European Urban Summer School (EUSS) for young professionals. AESOP wanted to bring together young professionals and experienced academics and practitioners across Europe to discuss planning issues.

AESOP expected that it would facilitate trans-European understanding of planning matters and, as a consequence, will help to improve the quality of life. These aims corresponded with AESOP objectives enumerated in AESOP Charter. AESOP wished to involve both EU and non-EU countries into the project knowing that AESOP has no geographical limits of the membership.

AESOP has offered its resources in teaching at European Urban Summer Schools. This idea was to facilitate trans-European exchange and to foster a debate on the most important planning topics. It was supposed to promote every involved actors as bodies being able to help politicians and other stakeholders in spatial development and management issues.

This concept didn't involve economic profit. The European Urban Summer School should be a platform of debate and exchange and should be run on as low as possible fee for participants. Tutors do not get any fee for their work.

AESOP decided to invite European partners from planning organizations to cooperate in this project. In 2012 the folowing organsations have joined EUSS: European Council of Spatial Planners (ECTP-CEU), International Federation for Housing and Planning (IFHP), International Society for City and Regional Planners (ISOCARP).
