Planning Parents Evening Landing page

This event is for parents/guardians and sons/daughters in years 13 and 14 who are studying, or considering studying, geography or related subjects at GCSE, A-Level or equivalent vocational qualifications.

In an increasingly urbanised world, cities represent both the greatest social, environmental and economic challenges and opportunities for planners and urban designers alike to create more sustainable environments and just societies. As such, there has never been a better time to explore subjects like planning and climate change, the urban economy, transportation, conservation and built heritage, and planning for healthy cities.
