The Sixth International Conference on Sustainable Development and Planning, will take place from 27 to 29 October 2013 in Kos, Greece.

Europe's cities are its centres of economic activity, innovation and employment, yet they face a number of challenges. The trend to suburbanisation, the concentration of deprivation and unemployment in urban neighbourhoods, increasing congestion - complex problems such as these require integrated answers in transport, housing, and training and employment schemes, which must be tailored to local needs. Sustainable urbanisation is needed if Europe's cities are to successfully manage unprecedented growth.

The conference will address regional development in an integrated way, and in accordance with the principles of sustainability. It has become apparent that planners, environmentalists, architects, engineers, policy makers and economists have to work together in order to ensure that planning and development can meet present needs without compromising future generations.

This event will bring together scientist and other stakeholders with the aim of focusing on developments in managerial strategies and assessment tools for policy and decision makers.For further information, please visit:
