The programme of the summer school spans across 7 days, and includes research walks and talks with local activists, NGOs and neighbours, five guest lectures by international keynote speakers and workshops supported by the local scientific team and members of the Thematic Group for Public Spaces and Urban Culture of the Association of European Schools of Planning. Invited guests will not only “deliver” knowledge, but also join in the practical teamwork. Local initiatives will particularly provide insights on emerging cultures and local needs, and supply provocative questions related to the practical examination of the site and the topic. The workshops will then put emphasis on the development of the action research approach and provide room for feedback and exchange on participants’ work. The programme will culminate with a self-organized public event which will involve local residents. It is here, where alternative ideas for opening the area towards the wider local public will be displayed and shared.
