What is the image of the European countryside(s), to what extension has the image affected our understanding of what the countryside is, and how real is this image?
There is a urgent need to develop new tools for how listen, analyse and communicate the challenges and possibilities for the European countryside(s). Within this seminar we ask ourselves what new know-how needs to be generated in order to develop a situated spatial planning in rural areas and required ecological reparations. How can we plan for a resilient [rurban] future?

An Urban Occupation of the Countryside(s)
Place: To be settled
Date: Autum 2019
The anthropocene marks the initial steps for the destabilising conditions we experience today. One of these conditions is the unbalanced relation between the urban and the rural. Today the future is mainly defined and experienced through the urban agenda while the rural areas still continues to used as sources of resources for the ever growing city. The urban occupation of rural areas is manifested throughout many ways! What are the change makers and could spatial planning be one them, how then?
