From 27th to 29th of September 2017 a conference on “Coping with Uneven Development: Socio-economic and political responses to regional  polarization” was organized in Leipzig by the RegPol² project, which  Geomedia Ltd is a part of. The meeting focused on policy formations that  advance social, economic and territorial cohesion in the European Union.  The objective of the conference was to exchange conclusions on  socio-spatial polarization processes, focusing on political, economic  and societal strategies and current regional, social and economic limitations and their negative impacts all over Europe. The conference  also included academic presentations, among them a presentation of  Geomedia employee Bianka Plüschke-Altof who introduced the results of her PhD research under the heading “Image-Making as the Solution?” (in  collaboration with Martiene Grootens), interactive discussions, video  presentations and two excursions.
