AoU Congress Fringe 3x3 Series

Posted on April 06, 2021

The Academy of Urbanism would like you to join them for 3 evening 'fringe' events as we gear up for Congress 2021.

It is hoped that the 3 sessions will provide a different view to the usual built-environment talk, with speakers drawn from a variety of experience and fields.
