Dortmund Conference

Call for Abstracts, Sessions & Roundtables | until 15.07.2021

Spatial planning and development, despite guiding principles to the contrary, contribute locally and globally to social processes that exceed the planet's carrying capacity and distribute burdens and opportunities unequally. "If possible, please turn around!" therefore is not the suggestion of your navigation system after a missed turn, but the request to consistently question this direction as well as to point out possibilities that necessarily go beyond marginal directional corrections. The Dortmund Conference on Spatial and Planning Research 2023 would like to contribute to the Sustainability Turn and invites you to present your contribution to this process.


Prof. Dr. Antje Bruns Head of Governance and Sustainability Lab, Trier University
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christian Holz-Rau (since 1998 Professor of Transportation and Transportation Planning at the Department of Planning at the Technical University of Dortmund)
