Persistence of inequalities
The old problems of spatial segregation have not gone away and most social divides are projected spatially where they acquire particular visibility.
New planning challenges
The most visible and widely-covered challenges are related to the physical environment : facilitationg more frugal lifestyles, incorporating the principles of the circular economy, anticipating the consequences of climate change, resilience in the face of natural risks, managing scarce resources (water, space and energy), battling urban sprawl.
Changing (individual and collective) practices
Individual and household practices are changing and professional practices are changing as well, along with the form of collective action.
Summer school program
The programme is structured around 5 types of sequences (i.e., the seven types of activities co-organised by the doctoral researchers figure in the first four sequences):
Sequence 1: comparative presentation of thesis findings
Sequence 2: keynote lectures dealing with the three broad themes chosen for this Summer school
Sequence 3: workshops organised around thesis findings
Sequence 4: a day spent with local actors, including a half-day field visit
Sequence 5: group experiments in innovative analytical methods.
