Strategic Urban Planning: Co-creation for a Just City
Cities are vibrant, complex places serving as the backdrop of lives and livelihoods of many. Yet uneven distribution of infrastructure, wealth and opportunities within urban areas can exclude the vulnerable, exacerbate inequalities and lead to further segregation. Looking at urban planning from a critical perspective, this module links theory to professional planning. It covers themes such as spatial justice, the commons, the right to the city and global trends such as gentrification. It speculates how we - as professionals of the built environment - can begin to design fairer and more inclusive urban spaces for the future.
This set of videos is divided into two main categories:
1. Fundamentals: Concepts / Theoretical knowledge
Cover general concepts related to the concept of the Just City, from a critical perspective and its link to professional planning. Topics included are spatial justice, critical urban theory, urban commons and public goods, and complexity and system theory.
2. Tools: structured in What?, How? and examples
Include a set of videos that present various methods to analyse and understand current and future urban challenges considering storytelling, observational drawing, and co-creation.
