Dear Colleagues,

it is my pleasure to invite you to the 10th International and Interdisciplinary Symposium of theEuropean Academy of Land Use and Development (EALD).The Symposium will be held on the topic
Land use and planning for demographic and technological change
at the
Western Norway University of Applied Sciences
7th to 9th September 2023
The symposium aims to focus on land use and development in the context of exogenous change,with a special emphasis on demographic and technological change, which currently seems to beaccelerating in many jurisdictions throughout Europe and the rest of the world. We also welcome contributions related to other forms of change, including social, political, economic andenvironmental change. We hope to encourage submissions that address land issues in the contextof exogenous changes at different scales, ranging from work related to change and the impact ofchange at the individual, local or regional level, to work that addresses change nationally, in Europe,or beyond.
Presentations will be held on September 7th and 8th.
The event will be organized at the Western Norway University of Applied Science, in Bergen, Norway. The excursion is planned for Saturday September 9th visiting the older part of Bergen City including guiding about development of the historical part of the City. Bergen is changing and the light rail lines are important in thedevelopment of Bergen. We will during the excursion have a look at how stake holders handlingchanges in the transport system. The new Bike tunnels (3000m and 470 m) will be a part of the tour.
