URS-6255: Democratizing Community Planning

In this course, we will consider how democratizing planning and design could be used to dismantle unjust systems and ensure a sustainable future. We will examine undemocratic planning through social history and its connection to structural racism. We will learn what is the people’s “right to the city”, why democratizing planning is important, how planners and community members can shift planning practice and facilitate a “Just Transition,” and how to use popular education tools and strategies to “build the new” planning paradigm. We will study theoretical frameworks and practitioner principles for democratizing and decolonizing planning practice and how to apply participatory methodology in everyday planning practice.
