Po opažanjih nekaterih politologov se je v Sloveniji sredi prvega desetletja 21. stoletja pojavila nova raven političnega boja, ki poteka na osi urbano–ruralno. To je presenetljivo, saj urbanizacija in njeni spremljajoči procesi v Sloveniji zlasti od druge polovice 20. stoletja močno zmanjšujejo razlike med mestom in podeželjem ter brišejo ločnico...

Walkable access is recognised as one of the most important factors for deciding to walk instead of using other modes of transport. Distance has been less accurately taken into consideration in previous walking accessibility measures, however, as they are often based on an isotropic approach or on a fixed distance threshold. The objective of this pa...

Youth as a relevant group for the development of smaller industrial towns is barely a topic of current discussions. Their population dynamics, modern lifestyles, and complex everyday needs are a special challenge for planners.

Youth out-migration and demographic changes pose significant development challenges in many regions across Europe. However, the topic of youth out-migration has hardly been discussed in the literature so far, revealing a knowledge gap that exists on both an academic and a practical, applied policy level. Thus, the YOUIND project (‘Youth in industri...
Article

This article examines the contemporary industrial semiotic landscape in the town of Velenje, Slovenia, to determine the (positive or negative) collective imaginaries and discourses about industry in the local community. To this end, the semiotic landscape is mapped for signs and symbols of past and present industry, 33 randomly selected short inter...
Article
Full-text available
Industrial towns are often framed as marginalized and less innovative compared with service-oriented urban agglomerations. Their specific trajectories create both opportunities and constraints for new concepts, such as social innovation. However, little is known about their innovative capacity in relation to societal and cultural norms and social c...

Article
Full-text available
In the last two decades, the creative city agenda has evolved into a predominantly neoliberal policy instrument, which seems to hide rather than reduce urban inequalities characterised by gentrification, unaffordability, precariousness, and segregation. Scholars have only recently started to search for alternatives for understanding and developing...

Chapter
Slovenia’s settlement system is characterized by small settlements, a dispersed pattern of settlement, an absence of medium-sized towns, and small-scale (sub)urbanization of the countryside. This is the result of historical events, especially the agrarian character of Slovenian territory until the twentieth century and its polycentric development a...
