ISLANDS IN MOVEMENT / Lastovo 2018. 16. - 18.9, 2018.



Lastovo, 16-18 September 2018

This is an invitation to the 7th Anatomy of Islands Symposium, which this
year will be held on the remotest inhabited Croatian island – the island of
Lastovo. From 16 to 18 September our focus will be on islands and we will
be discussing insularity, marginalisation, interpretations of island life, the
benefits and difficulties of living surrounded by the sea, island mobility and emigration,
the present and the future. Following the symposium, an international
architecture and urbanism workshop will be held. Students and their professors
will study the landscape of Lastovo and suggest developmental conceptual designs
on chosen locations.
Topics of the 7th Anatomy of Islands
The topic highlighted as crucial by the locals when discussing the future of their
communities at previous Anatomy of Islands events was the population drain afflicting
the islands and how to stop it and reverse the trend in order to increase
island population.
This year’s symposium is therefore dedicated to island migrations, from the past,
to the present, and into the future. Understanding the complexity of island mobility
and the necessity of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approach, we
invite speakers to join the discussion on the following subtopics:
● Islanders on the move – permanent and temporary mobility of island
● Tourist migrations – from summer to winter to next summer…
● Seasonal workers’ migrations in tourism, agriculture, construction
● Immigration of young urban population to small island communities –
state and local government incentives, motives for immigration (return to
ancestral estates, opportunity for a healthy lifestyle etc.)
● Locals and settlers – is co-existence possible
● Migrations of knowledge – searching for knowledge, accessibility of
knowledge, knowledge from the mainland, application of knowledge
● Role of the islands in global migrations – islanders are leaving, who is
7th ANATOMY OF ISLANDS: Islands on the Move 1
Call for Participation in the Symposium
We remain open to other topics as well. If migration topics are not your focus,
you can speak on other, equally important ones:
● So-called SMART islands – what are they and how does one become
● Islands, innovations, and new, specifically island professions – can we,
and should we, outgrow traditions
● Climate change, environmental policies and islanders – are changes
threatening our way of life and how should we act
● Methodology of island research and establishment of nissology, the study
of islands – islands are special, do they require a special island science
● Cadastre and property – can we get over the hurdle
● Island education – can it get to the island (school boat), can it be used
remotely (e-school)
● Medical doctor on the island – do we need a separate island health
standard, what about telemedicine
● Island cultural heritage – a source of new professions and a resource for
keeping the population on the island
● Social entrepreneurship on the islands, civil society, and international
initiatives – opportunities for self-employment, can we interconnect them
● Links between islands – we know they are weak, how can they be improved
● Common property on the islands and its management – we used to be
good at it, how do we stand today
● Island natural heritage and tourism – are we cutting the branch on which
the most profitable island economic activity is sitting
● National and nature parks on the islands – are we able to manage our
natural heritage
● Administrative division of the islands – can/should a local board on a small
island manage the development independently
● Spatial planning on the islands – do we plan an island municipality/town
or the whole island
● Islands and EU funds – how do we get the money
● New Islands Act – what is new, is it enforceable
● European Parliament Resolution of 2016 on the Special Situation of Islands
– 2018 is drawing to a close, are we participating
