Taking Inequality and Environmental Sustainability Seriously in Regional Policy
March 2 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
In a session chaired by Nancy Holman (LSE), Teis Hansen (Lund University) and Erica Pani (LSE) will be discussing inequality and environmental sustainability in regional policy.
Cities and regions across the world are experiencing pressures on the housing, governance and sustainability fronts. Challenges such as creating sustainable transport links, enhancing local democracy or tackling housing shortage push urbanists to think creatively. Founded in 1966, LSE’s MSc Regional and Urban Planning Studies (RUPS) programme has established its reputation as a key player in urban innovation with alumni working in public policy, architecture, think tanks and government across the world. Our new series Progressing Planning is designed to showcase LSE’s impact on urban issues by bringing together academics and RUPS alumni. In so doing, we aim to show how research at LSE links to practice across the world.
This interactive session will bring together professionals, academics and the public around presentations and a general discussion.
