The north-eastern part of the old town of Izola in Slovenia contains areas protected as natural and cultural heritage and is presently experiencing significant capital pressure. At the location were probably the first thermal baths in Slovenia as well as first fish canneries established in the nineteenth century. Today the main characteristics of the area are fenced-in industrial activities (also the) and a lack of green programs and systems. The beautiful seaside promenade between Koper and Izola is cut off by industrial area and the degraded urban area, which was partly filled in where a shipyard was built in the 1970s, is still used exclusively by the shipbuilding and fish-processing industries. The Jadranka campground, located on a narrow strip between the sea and the entrance road into Izola, is intended for tourist activities. Slovenian and foreign investors are seeking permission to build three islands in Viližan Bay and start the construction of large-scale tourist resorts. If the investors can realize these plans, this would completely change the image of Izola and turn it into the largest seaside tourist resort in Slovenia (Šuligoj, 2009).
The challenge for the workshop participants was how in to what extend to revitalise the workshop area of east part of Izola. The groups with their mentors each had a different approach. The results were composed in a printed book witch can be downloaded with the provided link.
