What is UrbanPlan?
UrbanPlan is a realistic, hands-on simulation in which participants—high school students, university students, or public officials—learn about the fundamental forces that affect urban development in our communities. Through experiential learning, students utilise creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and public speaking skills, to name a few. The challenge invites teams to formulate a placemaking vision and propose solutions for creating vibrant and accessible urban neighbourhoods that are both socially desirable and economically viable.
As the Urban Land Institute’s signature education initiative, UrbanPlan aims to further ULI’s mission of providing leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide, by encouraging a sophisticated level of discourse among local stakeholders involved in land use decisions. UrbanPlan’s goal is to outreach to, engage with and educate a wide breadth of stakeholders, from students, to tomorrow’s voters, neighbours, community leaders, public officials and land use professionals, so – together – we can create better communities.
Our workshops are suitable for the following unique audiences:
