Three-Day Workshop for Young Planners
UKZN’s School of Built Environment and Development Studies, together with the International Society of City and Regional Planners (ISOCARP), will host a three-day workshop in Durban in September.
The aim of the workshop is to bring together young professional planners from across the globe to provide fresh solutions to developmental issues which are common in many countries. The workshop is also intended to stimulate the professional interests and the development of planning skills of younger planners.
The workshop will be in a studio setting under the guidance of international and local experts from ISOCARP and UKZN.
UKZN academic, Dr Hangwelani Hope Magidimisha of the School of Built Environment and Development Studies, said she hoped the workshop would bring together ideas that the municipality and the government would be able to implement.
‘This is an international event many young professionals from across the globe will be attending. They will bring with them experience which will tackle the challenges that the country as well as the continent face in the built environment,’ said Magidimisha.
She said the workshop would put UKZN on the map with regard to its planning, housing and architecture programmes.
The event will be attended by 90 participants from South Africa and Africa.
