Spatial planning and sustainability

Get a tangible, hands-on approach to addressing key spatial planning issues understood within the broader context of sustainability, in the quest for a green urbanism approach. The need for strategic planning and decision-making is discussed from different angles, as interfaces are sought between planning, urban design, and sustainability. While this is largely discussed from an environmental perspective, the discussions simultaneously acknowledge the social and economic implications of good spatial planning approaches, from the macro to the meso and micro urban scales.
