Cross-border urban and regional planning is a typical European topic. Spatial developments in densely populated Europe do not stop at territorial limits of city regions. The resulting planning and communication tasks require increasing horizontal and vertical cooperation. Europe can offer a great deal of experience as well as organizational and methodological approaches.

The day before the public opening of the IBA Project Exhibition 2013, the IBA Basel 2020, which aims at a better integration of a cross-border agglomeration, seeks to discuss such issues using concrete practical examples all over Europe.

During the symposium solutions for cross-border planning based on case studies will be pre-sented and discussed among experts, thus supporting the transfer of knowledge and experi-ence. Thereby IBA Basel 2020 learns from international best practice approaches, methods and tools and brings its solutions into international practice.

On the last day of the Symposium, Saturday 19th, from 10.00-13.00 an ISOCARP meeting was scheduled.

The meeting will be organized in the following way:
– Workshop: case studies of cross border planning from ISOCARP members
– National Delegation Meeting.
