ANNOUNCEMENT  FOR AN AESOP ONLINE SMALL FORMAT CONFERENCE IN JULY 2021 BY GDAŃSK UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY

"Adapting Planning: Rethinking the planning practices:

The main purpose of the event is to discuss the issues in the transformation of planning practices responding to the contemporary social and economic challenges, influencing also the urban governance models. The scope of issues discussed will include the adaptation and evolution of planning practices from different geographical perspectives (global versus local), types of planning approaches (based on legislation and regulations versus created “ad hoc” concerning the local needs and challenges), issues in governance (top-down versus inclusive, bottom-up approaches) and scope of the planning interventions (comprehensive approaches versus design-based solutions). The conference program will include keynote presentations, paper sessions, and roundtables, focused on different issues within the scope of the conference topic. It will be complemented by the virtual tour of the City of Gdansk and the presentation of key upcoming development projects.

The calls for abstracts (paper sessions) and contributions (roundtables) will be launched in the early May 2021. Also, the conference website and registration form will be made available to the AESOP community within the coming days. The entire event will be organized in online mode and a small participation fee will be charged to the participants.


The conference will be hosted by the Department of Urban Design and Regional Planning and the Local Organizing Committee will be chaired by Prof. Piotr Lorens (plorens@pg.edu.pl).

The conference secretariat will be managed by Mr Robert Orlik (robert.orlik@pg.edu.pl ).
