Planning education – quo vadis?

In this episode we speak about planning education around the world. What theories, paradigms and ideas are taught?
We asked our interview partners three questions about their experiences and opinions about the planning education in various countries.

Be part of the conversation: Send us your responses to our questions in the comments below

  • What was the geographical origin of the predominant theories in your studies of spatial (urban) planning?
  • How do you feel about the diversity of geographical focus in your education?
  • What affected your planning ideals? What are the theories and/or practices you identify and/or work with?

Thanks to our interview partners for your perspectives and thought provoking insights:

The podcast “breaking paradigms” is a collaborative effort of Constanze Frech and Sarah Kusché. It focuses on all things spatial planning, especially regarding knowledge transfer and non-European practices and theories. Every 30-minute episode centers around a different topic and should give insights and perspectives on both theory and practice. Our goal is to be educational for those still studying and already in the professional field. We seek to collaborate with experts in their respective fields from all continents and build a platform to exchange niche subjects and start a conversation.
