Dear colleague,

as you share an interest in (cross-border and transnational spatial planning and related topics), we warmly invite you to the first / launch meeting of the AESOP Thematic Group on 'Transboundary spaces, policy diffusion and planning cultures'!
The launch meeting of the Thematic Group will take place  at the beginning of the Annual Congress in Prague, i.e. on Monday 13 July 2015, 9am-12.30pm. 

The room for the meeting has not been announced yet - please check conference programme once finalised.
During this first meeting, we would like to have a discussion about the objectives for the Thematic Group and proposals for future action. These might include events / seminars of relevance to the group, ideas for joint publications or joint projects, or anything else you consider useful to fill the group with life. If you have any particular suggestions for the agenda of the meeting, or a proposal to take the lead on a certain initiative, we would be very happy to receive those. 

We hope to welcome you at this Thematic Group meeting in Prague! 

If you are interested in joining the group but are not able to be present at the meeting, please inform Giancarlo Cotella [This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.] so that we can keep you on our list and informed about any updates.
And please feel free to forward the invitation to join this Thematic Group to any colleagues who might be interested!
We look forward to seeing you in Prague,

best wishes,

Stefanie and Giancarlo
