"If possible, please turn around!" Research and Planning for the Sustainability Turn

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Colleagues,

we are pleased to inform you that the 6th Dortmund Conference on Spatial Planning and Planning Research will take place at TU Dortmund University on February 13 and 14, 2023.

The 6th DOKORP is dedicated to the “Sustainability Turn”. Despite contrary guidelines, spatial planning and development contribute locally and globally to social processes that exceed the planet‘s carrying capacity and distribute burdens and opportunities unequally. „If possible, please turn around!“ therefore is not the suggestion of your navigation system after a missed turn, but the request to consistently question this direction as well as to point out possibilities that necessarily go beyond marginal directional corrections. The Dortmund Conference on Spatial and Planning Research 2023 would like to contribute to the Sustainability Turn and invites you to join the discussion and contribute your input. As keynote speakers we could win Prof. Dr. Antje Bruns, University of Trier, and Prof. em. Dr. Christian Holz-Rau, TU Dortmund University.


The conference program is published and registrations for DOKORP 2023 are now possible online here! More information is also available on the DOKORP-Website.


We are very much looking forward to welcoming you in Dortmund soon!

With best regards

The DOKORP team
