Izabela Mironowicz - Profil naukowy - MOST Wiedzy


Opis ogólny

Radical urbanist, professor at the Department of Urban Design and Regional Planning at the Faculty of Architecture, Gdańsk Tech. She investigates the transformation of cities. She is aware that the only real challenge they face today is the planetary crisis. She advocates degrowth and explores how its postulates can be implemented in urban areas (watch how here in Polish or here in English - first presentation at the session). She joins forces with those who are trying to do more to implement the postulates of degrowth in cities. She maintains the 'honest hope of the pessimists' that Dawid Juraszek wrote about (in Polish only, sorry!). In other words, she believes that it is worth looking for ways to preserve the human species and cities on planet Earth. She therefore supports an approach that prioritises the survival of ecosystems rather than human whims at the heart of the transformation of space.

Content Coordinator of the Sixth Congress of Polish Urbanism "Tomorrow of Cities". Expert on planning law and planning system in Poland

Besides, she has been a visiting professor at the Université Paris Sorbonne and the Université des Alpes in Grenoble. She has also been an invited researcher at the University of Tours. She sits on the Scientific Council of the Leibniz-Institut für ökologische Raumentwicklung (IÖR) in Dresden and advises the Slovak Accreditation Commission. She served as Secretary General of the Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP) from 2011 to 2015.

    Education for urban, regional and spatial planning has become a regular subject throughout most European nations; this can be attributed in part to European policies promoting planning and spatially balanced development, but also to the recognition that planning can support sustainability. Nevertheless, there is lingering and justifiable concern about the status, profile and recognition of planning as a profession in its own right...

  • Is This Distance Teaching Planning That Bad?

    - disP - Rok 2021

    In spring 2020, university courses were moved into the virtual space due to the Covid-19 lockdown.

We conclude that we will not return to the state of (teaching) affairs that we had previously....
