Subject of course

This master project offers an analytical and theory-based approach to problems in spatial planning concerning an increasing socio-ecological crisis. After a critical reflection of spatial planning regarding its position in a capitalist economic system and its own paradigms of growth we will discuss Post- growth and Degrowth as grounding concepts of a future planning system.

 During this course we will discuss questions like:


  • How is Degrowth and Post-Growth understood in (spatial) planning?
  • Which growth paradigms are reflected in planning?
  • Which rules, strategies and instruments are needed to implement Degrowth/Post-Growth in spatial planning?
  • What are (international) flagship projects and good practices of Degrowth/Post-Growth?

Teaching methods
