About the programme

Urban Ecological Planning (UEP) is a practice based program that enables students to develop skills and knowledge to address complex urban issues in rapidly changing social, cultural, political and environmental contexts. The program stresses on an integrated approach to strategic spatial change, with a specific focus on participatory, inclusive and developmental planning practice.

The programme provides a strong link to practice and seeks to challenge urban practitioners from all backgrounds, with an underpinning ethos that the best approaches begin with people themselves.
