The ECTP-CEU YOUNG PLANNERS 2017 e-Book is Released !
Introduction to the e-book:
Bringing 35 year old planning professionals together from different parts of Europe is one of the central objectives of our annual Young Planners Workshop. The European Council of Spatial Planners (ECTP-CEU) strongly promotes and supports this profession related activity by making it one of its most important activities. While working together, participants experience in a very direct way how different viewpoints and approaches of different planning cultures can bring on a variety of solutions to specific planning issues. Besides great networking opportunities, the workshop offers an on-the-spot learning by discussing and valorizing input from many young professionals. A variety of methods, instruments and techniques relevant for spatial planning is presented and discussed. This way, participants experience the relevance and dynamics of spatial planning as it is implemented in different cities and regions throughout Europe. By tackling real planning projects, the planning professionals can contribute to real improvements of our living environment, our social condition and our economy.
The added value a spatial planner can offer, is definitely the integrative approach. The way the young planners workshop is designed, entre alii by visualizing the different consequences sectorial decisions can have on the spatial development of a specific place, a real coherent set of solutions can be examined. At the occasion of the 12th Biennial of European Towns and Town planners last June in 2017 in Paris on Cities and Olympic games or other world events, the focus was evident.
The call for proposals led to a wide range of submissions from many different parts of Europe on European cultural capitals, world expositions, Paralympic and Olympic games, mega-events and international expositions. Projects and policies, effects on urban development and inhabitants were discussed from London and Grenoble over Rio and Milan to Flanders and Zaragoza. The 2017 edition was a true success. The Young planners working group pursued their discussions during a specific program item during the plenary session of the 12th Biennial in Paris. The conclusions are presented in this e-book.
Let me recommend the e-book to all - young and older - spatial planners, members of the ECTP-CEU member associations throughout Europe, not only to inform themselves on the impact of mega-events on urban development and the approach presented by the different teams, but also to encourage young planners to partake in the 2018 and following Young Planners Workshop events.
Finally, let me conclude by thanking Ignacio Peman, member of the ECTP-CEU Executive Committee and representative delegate from the Spanish association AETU, who not only initiated the young planner’s workshop, but is the untiring promotor and organizer of the working group, as well as final editor of this e-book.
Muchas gracias, Ignacio!
