Our February theme was inclusive planning.
We featured a fantastic range of diverse projects covering everything from children and young people engaging in plan making through to the CeMi project providing positive and inclusive ideas for the use of cemeteries and crematoria gardens. We also showcased some great pieces of research highlighting the mobility challenges faced by disabled people through to the challenges of inclusive planning to make spaces work for all generations. The research featured also covered a broad range of communities from peri urban settlements in Bolivia through to the densely populated city of Dar es Salaam.
