7th Annual AESOP Sustainable Food Planning Conference

The Association of European Schools of Planning is announcing their 7th International AESOP Sustainable Food Planning Conference on localizing urban food strategies.  The conference is being hosted by the Polytechnic University of Turin and will take place on October 7th-9th in Torino, Italy. The conference will provide opportunity for cross disciplinary dialogue, networking and identification of important and emerging research related to sustainable food planning.  International cross-disciplinary researchers in the fields of planning, agronomy, design, geography and administration  and more will attend as well as new and early career researchers. The conference has a dual goal of ‘farming cities’ and ‘performing rurality’ to highlight innovative roles for agriculture in the cities while equally supporting the important role of agriculture in rural areas. The conference will be organized by five tracks: spatial planning and urban design, governance and private entrepreneurship, relevant experience and practice, training and jobs, and flows and network.   Abstracts will be accepted until May 31sth via the AESOP website and students and young scholars are encouraged to apply.
