This seminar puts the focus on global aspects which play a role in landscape and spatial planning issues. A variety of global aspects such as e.g. demographic change, political changes, urbanization, climate change have a significant impact on the spatial development and socio-economy on different scales. In the course some of these aspects will be presented, discussed and reflected upon.

Guest Professor Andrew Church is Director of Research and Development Social Sciences, University of Brighton. He will share his expertise during a compact one weeks course in May.
Rita Mayrhofer will lead the lessons in March and End of May.

We will focus on urban gardening. We examin the benefits and impact of this special form of landuse, its role in urban planning and the relationship between public and private - shared and individual land use. We will work on different examples in Vienna.

The lectures will be complemented by excursions to different projects in and around Vienna in May.
