The Vienna University of Technology (Austria) invites you to participate in the Evolution of Planning Thought Lecture Series, which takes place as part of the TU Wien 200 years anniversary celebrations in May 2014.

Lecture 2: Wednesday 21.May.2014, 17.00-21.30,

Lecture 3: Friday 23.May.2014, 17.00-21.30,
with John Friedmann, Patsy Healey, Gerhard Schimak, Klaus Kunzmann and John Forester

This Lecture Series unpacks how planners developed theories and conceptual tools, how these shaped the development of practice, how planners organised themselves at an international and global scale, and the conceptual, institutional and practical lacuna that remain to be filled.  Every lecture starts from a personal perspective to tell a much broader story about the Evolution of Planning Thought.  The subsequent podium discussion provides a unique space to reflect on where we are as planners, how we have got there and where we are going as a community into the future.  Each lecture concludes with a social gathering, allowing less formal discussions with highly respected planners of the first generation.
