Since 1991 the objective of the YPPs’ Workshops has been to bring together young professional urban planners from all parts of the world. The workshops provide an opportunity to work together as a closely-knit team. The Workshop has its own specific theme which is related to the main Congress theme. The theme relates to a concrete area/project. The workshops are hands-on workshops establishing a good working relationship with young colleagues from all parts of the world and aiming at final findings and results in a very short period of time.
The theme of the workshop is „Perm-2 Station Area”. This comes from the need of defining the city development strategy which will ensure its competitive position, strengthens the central part of it and takes advantage of the growing hub of regional and national transportation system.
