Learning from Copenhagen
In addition to Congress, and taking place directly after on 17-19 September, the Academy has arranged a special trip to visit our current European City of the Year, Copenhagen. See the key projects and places and meet some of the people who have made the city the envy of many others.
The Annual Congress is an inspiring, thought-provoking and entertaining opportunity to exchange ideas and hear leading-edge thinking from urbanists around the globe. It is an opportunity to embed the Academy within a city and utilise the assembled expertise of Academicians to tackle live local issues through hands-on workshops, walking tours and discussions.
Past hosts include Copenhagen, Dublin, Sheffield, Manchester, Glasgow, NewcastleGateshead, Bradford and Bristol. The success of Congress owes as much to the background and passions of its participants as to the insights and inspiration of the invited presenters.
