This was the third event in the Lecture Series by well-known planners, policy-makers and other ‘urban thinkers’, which is being organised by AESOP and IFHP in the framework of respectively the Silver Jubilee (2012) and Centenary (2013). The lecturers have been asked to present their ideas on ‘new vision’ for planning and territorial development. The lecture will be rounded off with a question and answer discussion with the audience.

Professor Danuta Hübner, as an academic, politician, Parliamentarian and former European Commissioner for Regional Development, has a broad knowledge and experience in the field of territorial development. She  presened her vision of the possible future of territorial governance at different spatial scales.
