***IUPE13 CONFERENCE POSTPONED***
Dear conference attendees,
After careful consideration regarding the threat from COVID 19, we have decided to postpone IUPE 13. Out of an abundance of caution for public health and the realization that many of you are facing travel bans at your respective institutions and in your countries, we have concluded that postponing the conference is the only solution.
The new date for IUPE 13 is 28 June – 1 July, 2021 in the same location, Tartu, Estonia. We are excited by the potential for participants to combine the IUPE conference with the World Planning Congress to be held in Lisbon 5-9 July, 2021.
For those of you with an accepted abstract you will have the opportunity to modify, update, or withdraw your abstract. For those of you who are satisfied with the abstract you have submitted, you will not need to submit a new one.
Please stay tuned for additional plans in the coming months.
We hope you are able to stay safe and healthy during this difficult and unprecedented time.
Sarah Coffin and Peter Phibbs – Co-chairs IUPEA
Lembit Nei, Katrin Kangur, Minea Kaplinski-Sauk and Zenia Kotval – Local Host Committee, Tartu College, Tallinn University of Technology
Congress Theme: Managing Change
As planners we must recognize problems, but also seek solutions so that change works in our favor rather than against us. It is our hope that this conference will allow us to share and learn from international professionals on issues facing our profession in the next decades and share noteworthy practices on how we can plan and manage changes affecting our built and social environment.
