Urban planning studies spatial conditions, and plans those for future needs. Our field of work is neigbourhoods, cities and regions. Across these scales and in all contexts, urban planning can’t be separated from its social elements. The programme highlights social aspects and the human factor of the global transition towards a more sustainable society. Sustainability challenges are interconnected with the communities that face them.
