What will I learn?

Master's specialisation European Spatial and Environmental Planning: something for you?

This programme looks beyond domestic policies and beyond spatial and environmental planning within one country.
It acknowledges the significant role the EU nowadays plays in our policies and practices.
This Master's focuses on the influence of the EU and international policies and how to cooperate with planners in other countries.
This programme is policy-oriented with links to planning practice.

What will you learn?

Although the main focus of European Spatial and Environmental Planning lies on the European Union and its policies and influences, the programme also addresses international policies and legislation that influence spatial planning, notably in relation to climate change. We look at the different positions member states and influential global players have on contemporary themes and critically discus how solutions can be found that would benefit all. You’ll better understand the multi-level system of governance in the integrated European Union, how EU policies are made and the influence they have on spatial planning systems, and how professionals can engage in European policy debates.
