Climate change is one of the most crucial issues facing communities today, and the increasing occurrence of severe weather events is just a reminder of the urgency of this issue. The RTPI is leading on guidance for planners to develop a practical understanding. This key masterclass will help you to understand how planning policy and development management should adapt and mitigate the impacts of climate change, how it affects local communities and how you can plan for effective urban drainage at a national, regional or local level.

  • Gain a better understanding of sustainable development and spatial planning to future proof society
  • Embed the principles of climate justice into urban planning
