From the Local to Regional: Who is Planning Urban India and How?

Who does Urban Planning ?
Naresh Kumar Sagar's photo.
Who is making the plans shaping fast-growing Indian cities and their metropolitan regions? The presentation, which shares preliminary findings of this research, is organized in two parts. The first part describes the changing perception of spatial plans within the planning discipline. Plans, for example, are no longer seen as precise and predictive in character but incremental and provisional by nature. There is a growing recognition that a diverse range of actors (homeowners, squatters, developers, politicians etc.) make different kinds of plans (informal, tacit, spontaneous, incremental and more) as they anticipate and prepare for an uncertain future in an increasingly urbanized world. The second part of presentation will then illustrate the wide variety of existing and emergent urban actors and their plans that are beginning to shape Indian urban regions in unprecedented ways.
Sanjeev Vidyarthi is an Associate Professor of Urban Planning and Policy at the University of Illinois, Chicago. Trained as an architect, urban designer and spatial planner, Sanjeev studies ideas and actions in the domain of human settlements focusing upon the meanings and purposes of planning for places. His research interests span the fields of planning theory and history and globalization and development studies, and his current research explores who does (and should do) the planning work. Exploring planning efforts in a wide variety of urban settings, Sanjeev has lived, worked and studied in the Middle East, Western Europe, and the United States over the past couple decades, while maintaining a strong research agenda around the spatial planning and development of post-independence India.

              http://trainee-pc/gbonewsletter/images/siteimages/fittosize__600_400_8031f95db429640826a689ef4662bee2_comic_artist_2015_54123.jpg
If you are a children’s book publisher or a game developer or an app company working in the tiny tots domain, then you will find your next business opportunity in the considerable area and attention dedicated to children’s and young adult media at the Frankfurt Book Fair. This is an area which is colourful, exciting and a "must visit" for anyone involved or interested in the children’s book community. Along with exhibition opportunities, there are many seminars and networking events held during the entire Fair which give insight into the "future of reading", what children’s book markets in other countries are doing, and much more. This is also the area where you can meet children’s book publishers, agents, digital service providers, illustrators, authors, and others.
So, Hall 3.0 is the centre of the KIDS universe at Frankfurt Book Fair, every year. Here, you’ll find the stand displays of renowned German-language publishers such as Oetinger, Loewe, Beltz among others, as well as large and small exhibitors, from the domain of children’s publishing, from Russia, Spain, Italy, Asia and many other countries. From Wednesday to Friday, on the Kids' stage, there are many professional events organised on various topics concerning children’s content, and on the weekend well-known authors give public readings. All in all this is a very happening area of the Fair. Apart from exhibiting opportunities, you can also check out the following highlights-
The Illustrators’ Corner, in the immediate vicinity of the Children’s Book Centre, is a contact point for illustrators and publishers. Portfolio advice from experts, rights advice for illustrators, glimpses into German and international portfolios – here, you’ll find the right contact person for all these things every day.
Tours for Inside and outside Hall 3.0 help you to understand the children’s and young adult community at the Frankfurt Book Fair. As group size is limited, so we request you to register as soon as possible to ensure your participation. Starting summer 2016 you can get further information on the tours here.
NEW: The Children’s Room of the Future
This is where products from the world of early childhood experience will take centre stage at the world’s largest book and media fair. At the heart of the Kids’ Community, the Children’s Room of the Future in Hall 3.0 is going to be the new hub for discovering innovative products and media for pre- and primary-school-aged children.
At FBM 2016, you can visit the five children’s rooms on the following themes:
  • Reading and listening
  • The ecological children’s room
  • Learning through interior design
  • Learning through play
  • Inclusion and migration
