Event Information



AoU Annual Congress 2018 will take place in Cork, Ireland,  27 - 30 June.

We are delighted to hear that Richard Florida, Author of The New Urban Crisis and one of the world's leading urbanists will be delivering the keynote address at the The Academy of Urbanism Annual Conference in Cork on Friday 29 June. For more information click here.

The Annual Congress is an inspiring, thought-provoking and entertaining opportunity to exchange ideas and hear leading-edge thinking from urbanists around the globe. It is an opportunity to embed the Academy within a city and utilise the assembled expertise of Academicians to tackle live local issues through hands-on workshops, walking tours and discussions.

The success of our cities has become central to national economies and culture. They are drivers of investment, tourism and migration – the young, the educated, the creative and the rich are being drawn to live and work in urban areas once again.

As we have seen with Aarhus, Marseille and Rotterdam, the transformation of mid level non-capitals is providing space for new ideas, enterprise, investment and even building types. But how can growth and expansion provide an economy and wellbeing whilst also retaining a distinctive identity?

Where better to explore this than in Cork, Ireland’s great maritime city on the Atlantic rim of Europe. Once the staging post for European emigration to the US, it now sees people and investment flow in the other direction.
