As part of its urban development planning stakeholder capacity development programme, SLURC will be delivering an innovative research methods training workshop on Participatory Planning and Design by the end of August this year. The week long workshop aims to expose government officials, built environment practitioners, NGOs workers and community representatives to the basic principles and methods of participatory planning and design. The workshop will draw on the Architecture Sans Frontieres-UK Change by Design methodology, which approaches participatory planning and design processes in ways that interrogates issues around power relations, social diversity, scale and spatial production. ASF-UK methodology has been particularly focused on informal settlement upgrading, drawing on experiences from Brazil, Kenya and Ecuador. The activity is currently scheduled for 25 – 28 September 2017 and interested stakeholders could contact SLURC to reserve a space for them.
