Veranstaltungsankündigung: Mehr Gesundheit wagen. Evangelische Akademie Loccum, Februar 2019

Mehr Gesundheit wagen. Gesundheitsregionen als Zukunftstreiber für Lebensqualität, gute Arbeit und nachhaltiges Wachstum?

Tagung der Evangelischen Akademie Loccum vom 26. bis 27. Februar 2019

In Kooperation mit:

  • Netzwerk Deutsche Gesundheitsregionen
  • Institut für Arbeit und Technik IAT
  • Ruhr Universität Bochum
  • Akademie für Raumforschung und Landesplanung ARL

Die Trennlinien zwischen ambulanter und stationärer Versorgung sowie zwischen Gesundheitssystem und Altenpflege erschweren eine gute Versorgung der Bevölkerung. Die getrennten und z.T. unzureichenden Finanzierungssysteme der verschiedenen Bereiche führen zudem dazu, dass das Innovations- und Wachstumspotential der Gesundheitsbranche nur eingeschränkt genutzt werden kann.

Call for contributions: Fachsession DKG 2019 – Räumlicher Wandel in Zeiten der großen Transformation

Fachsession des Deutschen Kongresses für Geographie, 25.-30.09.2019 in Kiel

Räumlicher Wandel in Zeiten der großen Transformation: Raumwissenschaften im Dialog mit Nachhaltigkeitstransformationen und Transition-Ansätzen (L5-SF-112)

An den Schnittstellen der (planenden) Raumwissenschaften und den Forschungsfeldern der Nachhaltigkeitstransformation und Transition Studies bestehen relevante Lernpotentiale, die in dieser Fachsitzung erkundet werden sollen.

Noch bis zum 25.01.2019 können Beiträge für Fachsessions zu folgenden Themen eingereicht werden: räumliche Transformation, konzeptionelle Ansätze, Herausforderungen für die räumliche Planung oder auch Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede der Transition Forschung und der Raumwissenschaften sowie unterschiedliche methodische und experimentelle Herangehensweisen.

Call for Papers: PLPR 2019 Conference 'Preparing for Climate Change in the Planned and Unplanned City'

The International Academic Association on Planning, Law, and Property Rights (PLPR) will hold its 13th annual conference 18 – 23 February 2019 at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, USA. The event will be hosted by the Texas A&M College of Architecture at the university’s Memorial Student Center, one of the nation’s premier student unions.

Annual PLPR conferences provide an opportunity to present scholarship covering a broad array of topics residing at the intersection of planning, law, and/or property rights, and we welcome any proposed presentation situated accordingly. Because of Texas A&M’s location and faculty expertise, the 2019 conference offers an opportunity to present planning, law, and property rights scholarship speaking directly to the conference theme – “Preparing for Climate Change in the Planned and Unplanned City.”

Call for Participation: ECOSOLA-Summer School

African and European Perspectives on Sustainable Urbanisation: Challenges, Dimensions and Solutions

Currently, more than 50 per cent of the world population lives in cities. It is predicted that by the middle of this century, 70 per cent of the world’s population will live in urban areas. The rapid urbanisation poses enormous environmental and social challenges in both African and European countries.

This summer school will focus on questions around how the quality of life of growing urban populations and environmental services can be safeguarded. Examining whether and how participatory and ecosystem-based planning approaches, smart neighbourhood models and (peri-)urban agriculture, we will explore solutions and help urban and peri-urban areas to become more resilient and to advance pathways of more sustainable urbanisation.

Dresden Leibniz Graduate School (DLGS): Doctoral Fellowships

The Dresden Leibniz Graduate School (DLGS) is an international graduate school of spatial research, economics and social sciences in Germany. It pursues a European comparative perspective with focus on regional and local development strategies. The DLGS provides an interdisciplinary Doctoral Studies Programme for recent university graduates as well as professionally experienced junior researchers.

The Dresden Leibniz Graduate School has been founded in 2008 as a joint activity of the Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development (IOER) and the Technische Universität Dresden (TU Dresden). The doctoral candidates use synergies between the TU Dresden and non-university research institutes in Dresden.

Call for papers and sessions: Space, Values and Power – Eurasian Cities and Regions in Transformation

The conference "Space, Values and Power – Eurasian Cities and Regions in Transformation" is based on the experiences of the research project Shifting paradigms – towards participatory and effective urban planning in Ukraine, Russia and Germany, funded by the Volkswagen Foundation.

The conference intends to stimulate transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary dialogue, bringing together scientists of various disciplines (e.g. geography, planning, political science, sociology, anthropology) and practitioners (e.g. urban planners, civil activists, politicians, economic stakeholders). We aim at a critical discussion on spatial transformations as contestations and negotiations of values and power relations within Eurasian cities and regions. In particular, we are interested in a careful consideration of the broader dimensions of normativity, practiced power and materiality, their interlinkages and practical relevance.

The participants will be selected according to the suitability of their current research to the topics of the sessions. Best abstracts presented will be invited to a full paper and peer review for journal publication.

IBA-Expertenrat des BMUB: Ein Memorandum zur Zukunft Internationaler Bauausstellungen

Seit über 100 Jahren sind Internationale Bauausstellungen (IBA) Aushängeschilder für Stadtentwicklung in Deutschland. Immer mehr Länder und Kommunen, längst auch außerhalb Deutschlands, setzen auf das IBA-Format. Inzwischen haben sich IBA von Architektur- zu Baukultur-Ausstellungen gewandelt. Um die komplexer werdenden Ausstellungen zu realisieren, bringen Städte und Regionen viel Mut und Mittel auf. Aufgrund der Vielzahl von Aktivitäten und IBA-Initiativen hat das Bundesbauministerium in enger Zusammenarbeit mit dem IBA-Expertenrat eine Qualitätsoffensive angestoßen. Bei einem Treffen in Berlin überreichten die Mitglieder des IBA-Expertenrates Baustaatssekretär Adler ein überarbeitetes "Memorandum zur Zukunft Internationaler Bauausstellungen" sowie neu erstellte Handreichungen zur Entwicklung und Realisierung dieses Formats.
