This conference morning programme included:
Informing on new policy recommendations for the urban fringe
The event highlighted the findings of the Sustainable Urban Fringes (SURF) project, which has been examining the significant economic, environmental and social benefits of the urban fringe, where urban meets rural.
There was the chance to find out more about some of the urban fringe projects across Europe which have informed the project research and analysis programme as well as hear from key experts from across Europe.
In the afternoon delegates took part in a study visit showcasing Aberdeen's urban fringe partner project - the River Don Corridor.
