Congress

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.
