1 Problems and Solutions of Environment and Urbanization in the World

2 Index I THE PROBLEMS OF TODAY II THE PLAN III WHAT IS HAPPENING? WHAT IS WRONG? IV THE PEOPLE AND THE EDUCATION POLICY. PROFESSIONAL PLANNERS PERMANENT EDUCATION V PLANNING CULTURE VI KEY TOOLS FOR SUCCESS ON URBAN AND REGIONAL PLANNING VII SCOPE OF PLANNING

3 AIM This paper aims at underlining most of the current failures on urban planning practice. The second part presents some suggestions on the field of permanent planning education and on some key tolls for success in order to open a debate among collegues.

4 I THE PROBLEMS OF TODAY STRONG MIGRATION FLOWS; PRESSURE ON METROPOLITAN AREAS UNEVEN OFFER AND DEMAND, HOMELESS PEOPLE. UNBALANCED EFFECTS OF THECNOLOGIC DEVELOPMENTS PEOPLE LOOSING A SCHEME OF HUMAN VALUES SOCIAL CONFLICTS AND CRIME, ATMOSPHERE OF FEAR - PANIC

5 II THE PLAN Plans have to understand the systemic nature of development and to consider all the aspects for city and regional planning. Legislation Technology Economy Art Humanism Geography Sociology Biology

6 Taking in account so many aspects, the elaboration of plans asks for a team work, a scientific interdisciplinarity and its political frame, plus citizen s participation, having in mind the two main postulates for development planning: Respecting Nature Human Solidarity

7 The process reaches a state of through planning. TRANSDISCIPLINARITY Development Planning Planning Biophysical Socioeconomic Plans Management

8 It is important to analyse what must be considered on planning management: 1. Administration organization and public powers 2. Human rights and land ownership rights and duties 3. Strategy and programming (available resources) 4. Monitoring (scientific support) 5. Sectorial Services, ONG stake holders involvement and citizens participation Bio-physical issues allow us to base territorial plan methods but they ask for a previous definition of a strategic delimitation of the PLAN SPACE

9 Besides the need of a multi plan-space to study a territory and its plan, also the time horizon asks for a multiple target: Short term planning horizon Medium term planning horizon Long term planning horizon Very long term planning VLTP The time could respectively be 5, 10, 20, 40 and more years. A plan cannot choose one of these horizons. We have to consider all of them

10 III WHAT IS HAPPENING? WHAT IS WRONG? People having no shelter Vacant houses (no demand for the offer) Empty traditional town centres (the car) Polluted waters Polluted air Traffic congestion and no parking available sites Unsafe traffic Crime, city social risk (fear) Land overuse, spoiled city silhouette and identity Too much noise.

11 IV PERMANENT EDUCATION Technologies/ Engineering Administration/Law s Economy Sociology Biology/Ecology Geography Drawing Models Active Mediation Systems and Network Coordination Disciplines Knowledge Train Exercise General Culture Communication History/Art Mathematics/Logic Metrics Sciences/ Physics Natural Sciences Human Relation ART INTUITION Structural Composition Image/Cultural Heritage Rehabilitation/Restoring Aesthetics Intellectual Reasoning Technical Infrastructures Street Furniture Theory Creativity Supplementary Education Planning Management Permanent Education Philosophy/ Psychological Strength Visual Education Sport/Health Endurance Civic Education, Moral Visibility/Deontology Planning power Investment/ Programming Process Multi-criteria Evaluation Monitoring Discretionarily

12 Bridges Between Subjects Economy Ecology Technology ART Sociology Geography Biology The main subjects for professional education would be: History of City Planning, Evaluation of alternatives (multi-criteria), Writing reports and messages, dialogue and oral presentation, Training of city design and messages illustration (images), Training of structural design and models development, Metrics and meaning, economic framing of city development.

17 For the first time the union of Europe is achieved by a peaceful way based on the feeling that the future of Europe depend from this united power. This strategy avoids the idea of one of the European countries conquering the others.

18 VI KEY TOOLS FOR SUCCESS ON URBAN AND REGIONAL PLANNING Anticipation of bad trends timely answers, public administration capacities/monitoring, this means permanent planning. Subsidiarity plus solidarity among public institutions and levels. This means quick help and power changing every time it is necessary. Civil services new mentality. This means permanent education. Education of citizens, meaning instruction and culture. Environment observatory, spreading the information obtained. Creativity models and alternatives, it means know-how, training and specific capacity.

19 Responsibility, transparency, communication Planning: Conscious of the issues. Definition of Plan-Spaces. Ideas/creativity. Contact with citizens and communities. Evaluation of alternatives (costs, impacts, effects and side-effects, resources needed, strategy for implementation). Messages and communication devices. Shaping and limiting neighbourhoods and organic units-plan spaces. Incentivating life together (vitality). Full-employment program and strategy. Spaces for creativity and launching of ideas. Incrementalist way of improving. Plans gradually detailed collegial kind of approval.

20 VII SCOPE OF PLANNING Humanity must find ways of wise and peaceful development. Citizens education and citizens participation are always within planning conditions and tools. Visual education can help different culture and languages to come together and to find a common policy for development. Let us put planning on the first row of our professional strategic policies. Never forget that city and regional planning needs an understanding and a balance between: Privacy Meeting
