We are a team of colleagues from the Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP) Resilience and Risks Mitigation Strategies thematic group, working on the ‘Climate Action in Planning Education and Practice’ project, aimed at reviewing how European Planning Schools are addressing climate change and climate action in their urban or spatial planning courses. The results will be presented in the upcoming World Urban Campaign ‘Urban Thinkers Campus’ on this topic in November 2021 and a potential journal publication.
We are currently looking for planning practitioners and researchers willing to collaborate with us on an online survey and review of higher education programmes delivered by Planning Schools in European countries (plus Turkey) listed on the AESOP "members directory" website. The data will be collected using the online platform/app Epicollect5.
This is a great opportunity to tackle an urgent topic and increase your professional and academic networking, while adding research experience to your curriculum. We also anticipate several ways to disseminate our findings, including a potential presentation in the Urban Thinkers Campus event.If you are interested in collaborating in our project please join us on 28th of June at 11.30 am UK / 12.30 pm EU, on Zoom link: https://ucl.zoom.us/j/93893438285,
