Invitation to the ESPON SUPER Stakeholder Workshop

Population increase in cities, growing metropolitan areas and change in land use patterns in and around agglomerations are the main development trends in Europe today. This leads to major impacts on the environment, productive use of soil as well as climate change.

Experts from all over Europe are invited to exchange and discuss potential effects on the development of future land-take in Europe. As part of the interactive workshop “The challenges of sustainable urbanization and land-take in Europe” results of two divergent scenarios will be presented and in-depth analyses by using a well-established territorial impact assessment tool.

The results of the workshop will be processed, especially for the development of recommendations to policymakers on sustainable land use and urbanisation interventions.

The stakeholder workshop will take place on 10th October 2019, from 10:00 to 17:00 in the Steiermark-Büro Brüssel building at Avenue de Tervueren 82, B-1040 Brussels. The workshop will be held in English.

For free registration, please contact gaupp [at] oir [dot] at until 22nd of September 2019. The workshop is limited to 40 participants. The detailed workshop agenda will be sent to all participants after registrations.

The workshop will be organised  in the framework of the ESPON SUPER project by the Austrian Institute for Regional Studies (ÖIR), the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL) and ESPON SUPER project partners. More information about the project you can find at www.espon.eu/super.
