AESOP 2012 26th Annual Conference

Patrick Arthur Driscoll (Participant)

Activity: Attending an eventConference organisation or participation


The congress motto "Planning to Achieve/Planning to Avoid" is an umbrella for a wide spectrum of planning concerns, and explicitly expresses the variety of functions planning has to accommodate in the face of the material conditions of the modern world. Global warming, environmental and ecological degradation, depletion of natural resources, natural and man-made hazards, and economic crises affect our modes of production, consumption, and mobility patterns, demanding for new strategies in socio-spatial organization and conduct. Participants to the congress are expected to contribute to the dilemmas of growth/degrowth, vulnerabilities/ resilience, and the contemporary relevance of planning in theoretical and practical terms, while pointing to the strengths and weaknesses of educational systems, and problems of local and regional geographies
