The world planners work in is undergoing rapid and constant change, which affects how they go about their practice. This edited book by Jessica Ferm and John Tomaney (UCL) seeks to capture this contemporary context and critically reflect on how major global social, economic and environmental changes are affecting planning practice in the UK. The book was inspired by the editors’ involvement in teaching a masters course on Planning Practice and features contributions from a range of leading academics in the Bartlett School of Planning.
The event will be chaired by Professor John Tomaney and will consist of a short presentation by Jessica Ferm summarising the key findings and insights from the book, followed by Q&A and a discussion with invited discussants: Nancy Holman (LSE) and Charlotte Morphet (London Borough of Waltham Forest and Women in Planning).
Further details on the book are available on the Routledge website. Some copies will be available for purchase at a discount on the night.
Refreshments will be served.
