This year we offer a unique format of intensive and participatory pre-conference workshops. The five topics selected for the workshops represent key dilemmas from the many confronting Israeli planners and planning-law experts in various parts of the country.
Our pre-conference workshops will be held on 10th and 11th February 2014.
The five regions are all within Israel and not in the West Bank or Gaza.
We have five options for workshops (two simultaneous workshops on each day). Workshops include travel and will depart from Haifa hotels and return there.
The three workshops taking place on the Monday will also have optional pick-up from Tel Aviv, for those participants who may wish to spend time in Tel Aviv before the conference, directly after arrival at the national airport close to Tel Aviv.
All workshops will include excursions, meetings with professionals, policymakers and local stakeholders. Each workshop is day long, and on each of the two days, two alternative workshops are offered.
Refreshments and lunch will be hosted. Participation fee of $40 is to cover bus costs only.
In order to assure co-discussion, the number of places in each workshop is limited to 20. Please pre-register in the form below (this page) according to your choice – only one choice per day.
