Following the publication of the special issue of the Built Environment journal on ‘People Plans and Places’ edited by Lucy Natarajan (which was published this year in two parts - ‘Outlooks on Participating’ & ‘Realizing Participation’), this event seeks to 'launch' this issue through facilitated group debate of its themes.
The event is a joint effort of The Bartlett School of Planning and the Development Planning Unit, and will be an active session to explore perspectives and experiences from across the global north and south, with the objective to have a collaborative, comparative as well as situated discussion around the connections between participation and planning. This new 'double special issue' is a collection of research articles and practitioner perspectives, from an international group of scholars examining diverse practices of public participation in planning and place-making, and theorising the directions of participation.
