New practices, new challenges

The biennial World Conferences Cities & Ports are always exceptional events in the life of AIVP. Prepared well in advance and with great enthusiasm, they are an opportunity to mobilise our global network around themes selected for their key relevance to the challenges and projects of today’s port cities. They also bring together the community of AIVP members, active stakeholders in the development of cities and ports, some of whom have been following our work assiduously for over 20 years.

Mega-ships: which impacts for port-cities?

This year’s annual general meeting of our association in Malaga will once again be an opportunity to bring together all those with a stake in the sustainable development of port communities. In Malaga we will be debating the issue of mega-ships, not just the shipping behemoths but also the giant cruise liners, which for many of us are a very real manifestation of globalisation, and perhaps of its excesse… Port authorities and local communities need to work together to devise new strategies.

United for success

For AIVP’s members, 2016 will be a year particularly rich in events in port cities, whose diversity reflects particularly well the richness of our own network. In addition, of course, to our 15th world conference, which is due to take place in Rotterdam in early October, this year’s activities will kick off in April in Antwerp, where AIVP’s Port Center Network group will hold a new seminar on societal integration. Then it will be on to Lorient, France, to learn about the city’s plans as part of a study trip in May, and the following month we will be in Malaga, Spain, for our 2016 General Meeting and another round of AIVP Days. In July, Ningbo will be the setting for AIVP’s first regional meeting in China.

A future that will necessarily be more respectful of our planet

It is hard not to wonder whether we are on the right path. Terrorist threats, global climate and environmental crisis, the migrant crisis, economic problems of all kinds all over the planet… all is not well in the world. It is plain to see every day, that we are all – both individually and collectively – in some way affected by the climate of fear for ourselves and our children. What we lauded as the ideal development model has negative impacts that we have failed to appreciate, and is now coming up against the bitter reality of our world and its limited resources.
