All the principal activities of the GUDesign network (such as, seminars, publications, interviews, lectures and site visits) are developed through the thematic and geographic nodes, which are promoted and coordinated directly by the network’s members.
The seminars are the principal outcome of the thematic nodes of the network and directly linked to them. Actually, are the first step of the research the thematic nodes are promoting. They are organized in the form of panels or of single lectures, with discussants or simply followed by debate. Whatever the form their aim is to promote further interdisciplinary research on global issues relevant to urban design’s historical development.
