|Subject:||[CPEO-MEF] Fw: Industrial reconversion symposium|
I don't know anything about the folks putting this conference on, but those near closed or closing military sites might be interested. Steve --- RENDEZ-VOUS MONTR?AL 2002 INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM May 28 to 31, 2002 Industrial Reconversion Initiatives Implemented by Actors in Civil Society Montr?al, Quebec, Canada When a site that had been the focus of major industrial activities shuts down, the local population inevitably suffers the consequences. Consequences such as economic stagnation, discouragement, and poverty. How can we break out of this kind of downward spiral? The Rendez-vous Montr?al 2002 symposium is addressed to those who have inspired or launched projects that mobilize actors in civil society to work together to revitalize such sites, thus offering new hope to local communities. This international event will showcase fifteen or so alternative industrial reconversion experiences. Approximately thirty experts, academics and key players in this sphere will comment on and analyze the experiences to pinpoint the conditions involved in these alternative approaches, which give new life to industrial areas abandoned by market forces and public authorities. The participants will have an opportunity to discuss various aspects and raise questions with the speakers. This symposium will provide an overview of alternative reconversion initiatives in Europe and North and South America, and give participants a better understanding of the dynamics and secrets behind their success. The participants will be able to assess the similarities and uniqueness of the various experiences highlighted, and discover aspects that are transferable to other local development initiatives. The Rendez-vous Montr?al 2002 Symposium will be held at the University du Quebec ? Montr?al, in the heart of the city's downtown area, from May 28 to 31, 2002.
