More Course Details

Planning still suffers from defensiveness due to the failure of urban renewal. Rather than becoming a profession in constant penance for past mistakes, we should learn from them and become leaders for good planning in the future!

Leading in planning today means speaking up for those who are unable to speak up for themselves and listening to those who can advocate for their interests. The speaker reviews recent research on planning leadership to produce bold, equitable results.
