The Bartlett School of Planning Research Day showcases the work of researchers across the School and sets out pathways for future research. The first session addresses the climate emergency and the planning of urban built environments, with a particular focus on contemporary programmes to promote sustainability and circularity. The second examines broader debates over the design of cities and places and the effectiveness of reactive adaptations and post-pandemic recovery programmes in both the Global North and South. In the afternoon a diverse panel examines broader questions over the future of planning debates and key directions for urban studies research.
