The Romanian Professional Association of Urban Planners (APUR), together with Urbasofia SRL and the International Society of City and Regional Planners (ISOCARP) – Romania, proposes the organization of an international Urban Thinking Festival. The theme for the festival’s 1st edition will be Smart Planning for Cultural Heritage, in close connection to other events related to the European Year of Cultural Heritage – 2018.
The festival will take place between the 25th of August and the 1st of September 2018, in the city of Brașov in Romania and will gather a group of 30 young professionals, along with 5 international experts, 6 urban planning professionals from the organizing institutions (facilitators), local experts and other invited guests.
The Urban Thinking Festival aims to propose, through the work of selected students and young professionals, invited international experts and capitalizing on existing local knowledge, new methodologies for tackling planning for cultural heritage in small and middle-sized cities. The output of the festival is twofold: a manifesto for smart planning, including possible approaches and methods for developing cities based on cultural heritage, as well as a spatial cultural concept for the host city, that can be detailed in subsequent projects to improve the city’s image in relation to the conservation and capitalization of its cultural heritage.
