Inclusive Urban Planning: Perspectives for Collaboration

Main Information

How to reconcile professional scientific methods, the interests of developers, governments, and public participation in urban planning? This question is especially relevant today, as significant urban changes are taking place in Lithuanian cities and towns. In the processes of urban change the voices of the interested parties have different decisive meanings. This often leads to conflicts in the form of mistrust, protests, litigation, project delays and financial loss. This seminar was born out of the need to build a dialogue between stakeholders for the sustainable development of the city for the benefit of all.

The seminar will provide an opportunity to get acquainted with examples of good practice in Lithuania and the world and will invite to discuss the compatibility of different approaches and interests in order to create more sustainable and healthier cities.

The seminar is part of the project "Genius loci: urbanization and civil community". This project was initiated by the community of Lower Šančiai in partnership with KTU, the Municipality of Bodo and the Vellenes Fellesorganisasjon (Association of Norwegian Communities).

Mrs. Gintarė Skaistė, member of the Seimas of the Republic of Lithuania, Minister of Finance assists in the implementation of the seminar.

The project is funded by the EEA and Norwegian Financial Mechanisms and the Active Citizens' Fund.
