Urban Environs in the Relation to Sustainable Development Agenda

The International Doctoral Conference scope is focused on urban issues related to the built environments, landscapes, urban design and planning, development of different projects at different scales; all in the relation and with the link to the sustainable development agenda and durability of solutions and visions.

We would like to invite all PhD students, PhD candidates or professionals, who would like to share their desire and knowledge for better and more meaningful projects, theories, studies, research papers, visions and ideas related to urban filed.

We would like to ask you, please contact us and send your great papers! Prague, as one of three UNESCO heritage sites of central city areas in Europe, faces contemporary issues and problems like other cities in the time of decline, even though it belongs to the richest regions within the EU measured by domestic production.

But in these days, Prague, after fast floods in June 2013, is trying to accelerate its urban potential and searches for new strategies and plans. The process started in December 2011 and is going step by step further in issues related to built environment and urban planning. It is leaded by the City representatives, supported by academic sphere, NGOs, developers and institutions.

This might be very interesting to see, what kind of processes and partners are taking part of that great urban “renaissance”. Therefore we have decided to make a joint venture with the already fourth Inventory of Urbanism, which is going to be the most important annual Conference of urban planners, architects, politicians and developers related to city building. This year the issue of Prague development will be mostly discussed. If you decided to take part at our Doctoral Conference, automatically you will be part of that great event.

This Conference is supported by the Grant of the Czech Technical University SVK 36/13/F5.
