Planning Horizons Hungary

The RTPI published five Planning Horizons papers during the Institute's Centenary Year in 2014. These papers take a step back from immediate policy concerns and offer a long term as well as global view of planning and the contribution it can make to some of the major challenges we face in the 21st Century.

The Hungarian versions of the Planning Horizons papers have been produced by the Hungarian Society for Urban Planning (Magyar Urbanisztikai Társaság, MUT). They can be downloaded below.

The five Planning Horizons papers are:

Thinking Spatially (Térben Gondolkodva)

This paper considers how thinking spatially can help policymakers make better judgements about how individual policy proposals affect a place as a whole.

Thinking Spatially was translated into Hungarian by Roland Láposi, a planning student (now graduated) at Heriot Watt University.

Future Proofing Society (Jövőálló Társadalom)

This paper looks forward to some of the major long-term climate change and demographic change challenges that will shape the next 100 years.

Promoting Healthy Cities (Egészséges Városok)

This paper examines the vital role that planning can play in delivering improvements to health and well-being, especially in urban contexts.

Creating Economically Successful Places (Gazdaságilag Sikeres Helyek Létrehozása)

This paper examines the role that planning and planners can and do play in supporting sustainable economic growth.

Making Better Decisions for Places (Hozzunk Jobb Döntéseket a Helyekről)

This paper looks at how public and private governance structures can influence the effectiveness of planning, and how barriers to delivery can be overcome.
