4th AESOP-ECTP-CEU-IFHP-ISOCARP EUROPEAN URBAN SUMMER SCHOOL
for young planning professionals
EUSS 2013: STRATEGIES FOR THE POST-SPECULATIVE CITY
DATE: Sunday 8th to Sunday 15th September 2013
PLACE: San Pablo CEU University, Madrid, Spain
The Directorate responsible for planning at the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment (I&M) is encouraging young planning professionals to provide new ideas on the forms, methods and possibilities in spatial planning needed to face present-day challenges facing our human settlements. It is therefore using the European Urban Summer School (EUSS) as the main forum to organise an International Young Planning Professionals Award (YPPA), giving them the opportunity to present their proposals on planning methods, explaining why these ideas can be considered innovative and of a broader, more general application.
The EUSS is a Summer School jointly organised by the Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP), the International Federation of Housing and Planning (IFHP), the International Society of City and Regional Planners (ISOCARP), the European Council of Spatial Planners (ECTP-CEU).
The YPPA are jointly organised by AESOP, IFHP, ISOCARP and the Directorate for National Spatial Planning, Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment in The Netherlands which also funds the award.
The competition aims to promote innovative ideas on spatial planning in Europe from young professionals and stimulate thinking on the role of the urban planner in time of major challenges and rapid urban transformation in economic, social, environmental, demographic and political terms. Planning is "out of fashion". Yet it is needed, but has to prove its added value by offering the means to meet contemporary challenges in another way than it has traditionally done.
