Recommended Event / Regional Urbanism in the Era of Globalisation
February 3, 2016 @ 17:00 - February 5, 2016 @ 17:00 GMT
February 3rd – 5th 2016, Huddersfield
This international conference explores the changing face of regional urbanism, asking if the environmental, economic and social challenges facing many parts of the world will provide new opportunities for regional cities to develop alternative forms of urban living which are fundamentally different from those of the rapidly expanding metropolises. Inspired by recent debates about the over-riding economic, political and cultural dominance of London in the United Kingdom, and the survival of regional cities in the north of the country, this conference will take place in a key regional town, Huddersfield in West Yorkshire, located along the ‘Trans-Pennine Corridor’ between Leeds and Manchester.
Through an examination of such issues as environmental sustainability, cultural/civic identity, transportation, health and well-being and social/economic development, the conference will offer a platform for multi-disciplinary debate between academics, policy-makers and practitioners. The conference, which will be hosted by the Centre for Urban Design, Architecture and Sustainability at the University of Huddersfield, is aimed at urban designers, planners, architects, geographers, sociologists, philosophers, policy makers, urban theorists, historians, landscape architects, economists, conservationists, educationalists, health specialists and politicians.
