Celebration at the Committee of the Regions in the presence of elected members of the CoR COTER Commission May 5th 2014
ECTP-CEU, with the support of the Committee of Regions is proud to organise the 10th European Urban and Regional Planning Awards. This edition of the Awards is also supported by the SPECIAL project and Intelligent Energy Europe in collaboration with the TCPA (Town and Country Planning Association).
The ECTP-CEU’s European Urban and Regional Planning Awards give recognition to planning strategies, schemes or developments which make an outstanding contribution to the quality of life in urban and rural regions of Europe.
This is also a particular opportunity now that we have refreshed the European Charter of Spatial Planning stressing the emergency for strategy, participation processes and sustainable development in all processes of spatial planning.
The European Urban and Regional Planning Awards promotes the best projects or achievements proposed at European level on energy efficiency planning.
This year, the prizes will be awarded with Mr Petr Osvald (tbc), 1st Vice-Chairman of the COTER commission and Ms Hella Dunger-Löper (tbc), representing the Committee of the Regions in our Jury.
The celebration includes:
A presentation of the winners in presence of elected COTER commission members;
An exhibition of all projects within the Committee of the Regions;
The winning teams will present their projects in more detail in the afternoon.
An independent jury representing the planning profession and the SPECIAL project has been appointed by the ECTP-CEU and the Committee of the Regions.
