About us Faculty of Spatial Sciences Organization Lectures and symposia

Planning lecture

The Planning lecture is organised by the Department of Spatial Planning and Environment of the Faculty of Spatial Sciences. The idea of the Planning lecture is to have an informative an discipline related presentation on state-of-the-art debates in Planning and/or Geography either in planning practice, or in academia. We hope that visitors get inspired by a lecture that makes it possible to generate new reflections on existing ideas and concepts. The lecture series invites the audience to develop new perspectives and to get beyond business-as-usual.

For whom?

The Planning lecture is public. First of all students and staff from the Faculty of Spatial Sciences are very much welcomed. The very same is true for students and staff from other disciplines. And last but not least, we do also warmly invite professionals and simply those that are interested to join the lecture series.

Title: Why did John Lennon sleep with a bicycle?

Synopsis: Systemic change is enabled or held back by 'deep leverage points'. The underlying values, world views and stories that determine what we do and do not see. As a society, we often take these choices for granted, but they should be subject to robust debate. Groningen's Guide to Public Space offers an enormous opportunity for this.
