|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject was formerly known as Managing Change.
All practitioners in the built environment need at some point to be aware of the strategies and techniques that can be employed to elicit constructive involvement from the public, and to negotiate changes to environments where we live, play, and work. This subject will impart to students the skills involved in encouraging and managing participation in planning and designing the built environment. These skills include meeting facilitation, community consultation and participation, cross-cultural learning, negotiation, mediation, consensus-building, and evaluation of community participation processes. There will be considerable reliance on hands-on exercises based on case studies from around the world. The subject aims to be relevant to urban and social planners, landscape architects, urban designers, architects, property professionals, community developers and environmental activists.
