Abstract

This paper will report on the project “Educating Planners for the New Challenge of Sustainability, Knowledge and Governance” (PLAN-ED), aimed at the international exchange of planning knowledge, methodologies, and practices and the tuning of competences and learning outcomes in urban and regional planning degree-granting institution. The project was funded under the EU/US collaborative Atlantis programme. In practice, the project created a forum and a comparative framework in which four planning schools in very different geo-political contexts in the EU and the USA considered and debated innovative planning and policy solutions and their role as educators through knowledge sharing. These aims were in response to the realisation that urban planners across the globe are facing new common environmental, political and socioeconomic challenges (Hague et al, 2006).

This paper will reflect on the approach taken by Atlantis and PLAN-ED for promoting the comparability, transparency, and interchangeability of planning knowledge, practices, and skills. We will first describe the project rationale, activities and second assess its achievements and shortcomings within the broader analytical discourse around transnationality of planning knowledge and practice.
