«On behalf of the Technical Chamber of Greece-Branch of Peloponnese, I would like to welcome you at the 2nd International Conference on “CHANGING CITIES : SPATIAL, DESIGN, LANDSCAPE & SOCIO-ECONOMIC DIMENSIONS”, here in region of Peloponnese at Porto Heli village.
The Technical Chamber of Greece, continuously aims at improving Science and Technology in sectors related to the disciplines of Engineers, for the advancement of the professional activities of its members and, at the same time, for the spatial, social, economic and cultural development of our country, always in accordance with the principles of sustainability and environmental protection.
For these purposes, the Technical Chamber carries out surveys, research and studies; it contributes in programs on technical education and organizes related events; and of course, it participates in International Conferences.
So, it was pleasure and honour for me the decision of the Department of Planning & Regional Development of University of Thessaly to organize the 2nd International Conference on “Changing Cities” here in our region in collaboration with us, the Technical Chamber of Peloponnese.
And I have to express my gratitude for that to the Academic Community of the Department and especially to the President of the Organizing Committee: Professor Mrs. Gospodini.
We all know that, the last decades, universal changes and developments are taking place.
Our countries and societies face strong new conditions such as globalisation, post-industrial new economies, European integration, demand for environmental protection and new sources of energy, high technologies, high mobility of people, compression of time and space, migration, creation of multicultural societies, etc.
All these affect our cities, which change ad hoc in the new competitive environment.
At the same time, the Engineers attempt to change cities so as to adapt them to the new situations (conditions).
The spatial structure of urban settlements, the architecture of cities, the urban growth – landscape and morphology, the natural environment, the sustainable urban planning and development are among the main concerns of the Engineers, especially of spatial planners, urban planners, urban designers and architects.
The Conference presentations are referred to all the above and to more topics on “Changing Cities”.
I believe that the Conference will fulfil its aims to improve our knowledge to cities’ aspects, to new challenges and perspectives and to pave the way for understanding the future of cities in the new competitive social surroundings.
I also expect to discuss and exchange ideas on new policies for planning and designing (I would say) resilient-sustainable cities under the current pressure of environmental – socio and economic crisis, mainly taking into account the impacts of that crisis on the urban societies – economies – planning and architecture.
At the same time, our Meeting will give the opportunity to many colleagues to broad their professional fields of interest, especially this period of high unemployment of Engineers due to the economic crisis in Greece.»
