Through an effective and insightful planning system, we can reduce carbon emissions and adapt to climate change impacts already locked in. Planners can embed climate action in local decision making, foster net zero transport, improve urban greening, create affordable housing, smart cities and protect infrastructure from flooding.
But as the threats of climate change exacerbate, this is a crucial time to harness the value of planning and foster a more diverse and inclusive profession; empowering and enabling planners to prioritise net zero and climate resilience, and build healthy, socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable places.
‘Planning for Tomorrow’s Environment’ meets individuals and organisations at the frontline of the UK’s response to the climate crisis, exploring planning’s progress across healthy and sustainable placemaking, nature recovery, collaboration, research, innovation and skills development.
The digital series covers progress in areas such as renewables, energy storage, retrofitting, automation, electrical safety, policy and training. It provides a platform for the exchange of ideas and best practice, while raising awareness and inspiring the next generation.
