The E-CLIC International Conference will be held in Estonia in 2015. The conference will discuss the central theme of the project, present the project results, and launch the follow-up status of the E-CLIC online community. It will also provide a stage for the national winners of the CLIC competitions, who will be presented to the audience and will have an exhibition organised for them. Amongst the 18 national winners and the 3 participants from other European countries, three European winners will be selected by a jury of experts. The conference will be a two-day event, aiming to attract European and international interest.



The Lebanese urban planning system does not adequately address sustainability, livability, environmental, spatial and equity issues. Urban plans in Lebanon focus exclusively on the physical planning of the region under study and do not approach urban planning from a strategic perspective (UNDP, 2010).
