1.1 Young Planners Workshop: an ECTP-CEU project
ECTP-CEU (the European Council of Spatial Planners – le Conseil Européen des Urbanistes), founded in 1985, brings together 40 000 spatial planners with 27 professional town planning associations and institutes from 25 European countries.
It is an umbrella association providing its members with a common framework for planning practice, planning education, continuous professional development and the definition of professional responsibilities.
ECTP-CEU sets standards of education and conduct for the planning profession; identifies, celebrates and rewards examples of good planning all over Europe, and engages in dialogue with local, national and European governments.
In accordance with these objectives the initiative of this third edition of Young Planners Workshop on Spatial planning and energy seeks to set out young planners perspectives and experiences in frame of new European cities paradigms for energy saving.
