Participatory planning - creating space for action

Planning is political and planning is craft. Combining these two different aspects of planning is always a challenge. So is the interplay between theory and practice.

In this course we will explore the following questions:
What are the moments of political action in the planning process?
What political, economic, social and spatial framework conditions are necessary and helpful for these spaces for action?
Where and how do the transitions between planning as political action and planning as craft take place and how can we influence them?

We will look at various participatory planning projects, analyse them and jointly develop a participatory planning process for a real planning project as an example.
