Bridges built between Urban and Gender commissions

Bridges built in Umeå between the commissions of Urban planning and Gender Equality.

Integrated planning in practice!

A joint seminar between Urban Planning commission and the Gender Equality commission was held in Umeå 26 to 29th of may. The city of Umeå was earlier host for a Urban Planning seminar in 2000 and it was now time again. We had 35 participants from 18 cities and 7 countries who attended the city planning seminar called “Building the Inclusive city”. The city of Umeå showed its best weather and we had three sunny days to focus on social sustainability and planning issues. This was the first joint seminar between gender and urban planning and we found it fruitful mixing different competences and working integrated with planning issues.

Enclosed in this mail you´ll have links to the web with a short summary from the seminar with presentations, the plan proposals and a lot more. The seminar was also of interest from the media and the newspapers followed the conference. (Newspaper articles in Swedish enclosed in this mail).  

Read a summary at the webpage, download presentations and so on at the webpage;  www.umea.se/ubc_planning_gender. See also the pictures at the Flickr-account. (Link below). The city of Umeå like to thank all participants and seminar lectures who attended and contributed to build bridges between the commissions.  

Have a nice summer!
