In May 2012, Mendel University hosted a conference on the characteristics and problems of peri-urban areas around Brno, the capital of the South Moravian region. The authorities of this Czech province organized the event on the occasion of the general congress of the PURPLE group. The group brings together regions struggling with the specific problems of peri-urban areas, i.e. spaces where the characteristics and phenomena of city and countryside intermingle.
