AESOP 2020 – 15th Heads of Schools Meeting

11th-14th March 2020, TU Wien


The European idea has never been based on exclusion but rather on integration and common effort to foster prosperity and peace. The political discourse in Europe has changed and voices supporting territorialism and disregarding the necessity of collaboration and a coordinated European spatial development seem to be widely accepted. Planning schools throughout Europe educate students to hold positions that will shape Europe’s development in the future as it regards its social, cultural, ecological, political and economic qualities. Their efforts to integrate transnational perspectives as well as fundamental European values contribute to an open minded and reflected education enabling students to consider a broader perspective and act responsibly.

The spatial planning programme at TU Wien will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2020. Over the past 50 years, it has witnessed many changes reflecting changing approaches in academic education and spatial planning. An essential one was the integration of European perspectives in teaching and research and the effort to work for a common Europe. This also includes more contemporary educational challenges to revisit and rethink European perspectives in a worlded planning education, in theory and praxis, and as regards instruments, methods, empirical evidence and concepts.

Therefore, we would like to discuss a PLANNING EDUCATION FOR EUROPE AND BEYOND at the AESOP Heads of Schools meeting in 2020.
