Recent attention to critical issues such as jolts in economic activity, weak health systems, food insecurity and change in modes of education is leading to growing socio-economic disparities. The pandemic has triggered demands for new, more transformative, soft and adaptive planning approaches.

SPRING Alumni Conference 2020 “SPRING Cross-Regional Dialogue:

Responding to the Global Pandemic towards a Sustainable and Resilient Future”

In July 2019, SPRING Alumni held their first Winter School, an event organized by the SPRING Alumni (LAC) and members of the SPRING International Association for Development Planning in Valdivia, Chile. The theme was Evolving Dynamics, Processes and Linkages to support the achievement of 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development Goals 11 and 13 (Sustainable Cities and Climate Action).

In 2020 we continue this endeavour with an online conference about a more pressing matter.

This year the world continues to grapple with the COVID-19 Pandemic and its implications. SPRING Alumni remain committed to yielding opportunities for inter-regional dialogue and the open exchange of ideas, so we understand the new normal by supporting and learning from each other.

The conference “SPRING Cross-Regional Dialogue: Responding to the Global Pandemic towards a Sustainable and Resilient Future” brings together practical experience and theoretical reflections on planning policies, guidelines and practices. Its main aim is a deeper understanding of how these practices contribute to emerging transformative planning approaches and resilient regional spatial development.”
