The ARL – Academy for Territorial Development in the Leibniz Association -  is planning an event on 14 March 2023, from 10:00 a.m. to 02:00 p.m., to which we invite you to discuss and exchange experiences.

A French-German working group, initiated by the ARL, had been working on a comparison of the current situation of cities and metropolises as well as small and medium sized towns in both countries. The results were recently published in the book “Cities and Metropolises in France and Germany”. The book will also soon be available in German and French.

In the book, the authors analyse the embeddedness of metropolises and small and medium sized towns in the respective territorial and administrative structures and their importance and effects on settlement structures. In the context of the specific spatial planning systems and their relation to other planning issues, the authors looked at differences and similarities as well as the current challenges France and Germany are facing in spatial and urban development.

Together with experts from other European countries, we will use this online event to discuss and broaden our perspective on converging European spatial and urban development policies.


We will keep you updated!

Program details will be published shortly.

Registration will be possible from the beginning of February.
