Tracking the Ljubljana Urban Region

STUDENT WORKSHOP - TRACKING THE LJUBLJANA URBAN REGION - 2012/2013

During the winter semester 2012/13, a student workshop entitled 'Tracking Ljubljana Region' was held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, and in Vienna, Austria. The idea of the student workshop was borne out of the Alpine Space Programme project POLY5 
where two of the project partners are the Vienna University of Technology and the Regional Development Agency of the Ljubljana Urban Region. They invited the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geodesy, and the Faculty of Arts, Department of Geography, Slovenia, to take part in the workshop. With great pleasure, both institutions took up the invitation.

The results of this cooperation are available in a publication which is divided into two parts.

The first part is composed of the papers of the workshop supervisors and the colleagues involved in the POLY5 project. These papers represent the spatial planning processes in Slovenia and Austria at diff erent levels, some basic data and information about the Ljubljana urban region and some wider methodological aspect of Visioneering.

The second part of the publication consists of student workshop results with a focus on the concepts and visions of the Ljubljana urban region development. The aims of the student workshop as a master project were examining the role and function of a articular planning tool – Visioneering – within the planning cycle of a major transport infrastructure project. Visioneering operates by designing comprehensive and inspiring pictures of regions in order to stimulate the political, public and professional discourse. Visioneering certainly assists in grasping a region, but the role and function it has in a planning cycle are still underexposed in scientific and practical terms. This situation makes the master project 'Tracking Ljubljana Region' highly innovative, where the students got the chance to contribute to the scientific debate of planning.
