The Influence of Design, Development and Preservation

High quality urban design delivers on multiple levels.

It makes our towns and cities more desirable places in which to live by ensuring they have good public transport facilities, adequate supplies of affordable housing, and equitable access to job opportunities, social services, and community facilities.

As well as positively influencing socio-economic disposition, good urban design determines the health, social and cultural characteristics of a locality: how people interact with each other, how they move around, and how they use a place.

It ensures environmental outcomes are accorded the same status as social, cultural, and economic outcomes.

PIA stands firm in the belief that quality of design matters – and that this can be facilitated and encouraged by example and by balancing private, government and community interests.

Join us for this day as we discuss, debate, and look over examples that highlight the importance of high-quality design.

Fairness, Equity and Access – Planning for People

Planners, regardless of their role, work with people to plan communities. Our communities need to be planned for everyone without exclusion.

Throughout this day we will discuss the importance of planning’s role in creating communities that are designed to function, be accessible and welcoming for everyone in the community.

Presenters will discuss real life projects and examples, use of new technologies to better achieve this outcome or ideas, inspiration, and innovation behind how the profession can create better communities for all.

Vision and Solutions, it’s what we do.

Global megatrends are predicted to have relevance for decades to come, fundamentally shaping the role of government, policy-formulation, decision-making, and spatial outcomes.

We will have to rethink the way we consider and design our towns and cities and manage our natural environments.

Planners have the capacity to work at all the necessary scales, with the required long-term vision, and they can add an expert voice to what will be key discussions.

During the Festival presentation will consider how the planning profession leads change as the form and function of communities is challenged and changed by rapid urbanisation, climate change, technological advances whilst always keeping a focus on community and people.

YOUNG PLANNERS – AROUND THE WORLD TRIVIA

Why did I became a Planner?

This day of the festival is dedicated to you. A chance to think about the profession that you belong to, and how much you contribute to society through your role.

The day will have a focus on your well-being (because being a planner is not easy), some top tips for those skills we rely on to get through each day as a planner but aren’t always taught, and some time to focus on your career.

There will be connection with your peers, and presentations from outside the profession that recognise what you do.

Join us on Friday to re-energise, remember why we all belong to this profession, and celebrate all that you achieve. The right way to end any festival.
