Pavel Gantar

Pavel Gantar is an urban sociologist, focused on social conflicts and theory of planning. He was a lecturer at the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Ljubljana and has written a number of books, articles, participated at panels and conferences internationally. He was active in various important social, cultural and political movements throughout the 80’ and 90’, especially in the times of Slovenian Spring. He was also a Minister of Environment and Spatial Planning (1994-2000), Minister of Information Society (2000-2004), and President of the National Assembly (2008-2011) of Slovenia. Pavel Gantar will speak about the social significance of spatial planning as a cultural discipline and about the bonds between places and society beyond what is absolutely necessary. Are aesthetics and poetics in the design of spaces still relevant in the times of eruptive environmental and social challenges?
