The European Council of Spatial Planners Conseil Européen des Urbaniste (ECTP-CEU) are running a series of workshops through 2012 to bring Young Planners and other built environment professions throughout Europe together to exchange visions and experiences of spatial planning.
The RTPI are forming a group to work alongside planners and built environment professionals from Spain, France, Norway and Belgium, among others, to share ideas about how to better exploit regional potential and territorial capital in working towards sustainable development.
The programme will comprise a series of virtual workshops held between April 2012 – December 2012 that seeks to examine topics such as: urban systems of cities; influences of economic crisis on occupation; and community involvement and territorial development, using case studies of different regions across Europe, chosen by each national group. It will culminate in a presentation at the ETCP-CEU in Brussels in December.
The RTPI delegation will be using the case study of London, and invites young planners both within and outside the city to take participate in assessing its strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats to develop debate on the issues surrounding territorial cohesion in regions inEurope.
