Organisers of AESOP 2022:

Supporters of AESOP 2022:

Thank you for joining us for the Congress!


The AESOP 2022 Congress  'Space for Species: Redefining Spatial Justice' took place in Tartu, Estonia on July 25-29, 2022!

The PhD Workshop took place in Narva, Estonia, on July 20-23, 2022. The title was ‘Space for (all) Species: Creative Use of Data to Understand the Role of Planning’.

'Space for Species: Redefining Spatial Justice':

Our motivation behind this title is to explore space in terms of all species, the environment in general as well as various territories and habitats, including different kinds of spaces as well, such as cultural spaces, for example. Under this title, we would unite the aspects of legislation and justice, technological solutions and developments, the concept of a smart city, considering the smart city infrastructure as a method for inclusion or exclusion. Although Estonia is small, the country and its landscape and cityscape are very versatile. The low population density has given rise to scattered urbanisation and planning also focuses on scattered areas. The title would enable to find a balance between the track topics that have remained throughout the congresses and new thematic sessions in order to promote interdisciplinarity and enable people from narrower planning research fields to come together to see the big picture, co-operation, the interrelations between areas and how things affect each other.
