‘Outlook: Exploring Geddes in the 21st Century’ takes place on 18 and 19 August in Edinburgh.
To mark the conference, PAS has developed a new awards programme to encourage all young people to engage in their local place. The Patrick Geddes Young Placemakers Award will use the Geddes approach of ‘survey, analysis, plan’ to help make better and more inclusive places for the benefit of all.
To coincide with the Scotland’s Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design 2016, the two-day international conference will celebrate the impact and legacy of Sir Patrick Geddes, polymath, botanist and founding father of town planning.
On 18th August you will hear from young people about their sense of place as well as a range of leading thinkers, artists, architects, educationalists, planners. Day two will provide opportunities for hands-on art and design workshops.
Register now to book your place at this interactive series of seminars and workshops, fusing together strands of academic and practice-based thoughts from Scotland and all around the world.
