SAUL's final show «  Back

The Saul event took place from 27 to 29 June.
180 people from the four participating countries gathered around the 8 partner organisations in Amsterdam. British, Germans, Luxembourgers joined their Dutch counterparts to hear and see the outputs of the SAUL Project.


A warm welcome was provided in Zuiderkerk , a church in the Centre of Amsterdam, which was converted in more recent times from place of worship to spatial planners' temple. The permanent section of the exhibition gives a complete view of the urban development of the city from the Middle Ages up until the present day. Temporary exhibitions are also put on concerning new plans for the city - the area around the IJ-riverbanks, for example.

In this, Zuiderkerk was very much in link with the SAUL project activities in the Netherlands, as were all the other places in which the three day conference took place. The site visits were an extremely dynamic part of the event, when bicycles and boats were used as complementary means of transport to the more traditional coach and pedestrian methods.

A varied series of presentations gave food for thought on new urban landscapes, where economists, politicians, academics and planners were able to confront their views both on the past and current developments (SAUL was a pioneer in transnational working, dating back to the previous programme, IIC) but also on the future. All seemed to agree that the work done by the SAUL partnership could only be the beginning of more sustainable and accessible urban landscapes in the coming years.

The final conference concluded on an emotional note provided by Clive Fox, the SAUL project manager, whose dedication to the SAUL adventure could only be matched by the true transnational working spirit of his colleagues and counterparts.

What we liked about this event:
- all the locations for the conference social events were closely related to the SAUL project themes
- all the presentations during the conference were made available on USB sticks
- The conference agenda was respected religiously
- There was always someone around who "knew"
- We were kept on our toes!
