Ahead of their arrival, we ask students to prepare for the Summer School by performing three tasks. You need to be able to:
1. Explain ONE SPATIAL PLANNING ICON in YOUR OWN country in 3 slides in 3 minutes (1 minute per slide). You need to read document number 1 to understand what we mean by “Spatial Planning Icon”. Please, prepare an image of an icon to show . This is a VERY SHORT EXERCISE. Remember you will have only 3 minutes to explain. (At TU Delft, we take short presentations very seriously, so you will not have extra time!).
2. Explain how is Dutch planning different from planning in your own country in 3 minutes. You need to read document number 2 in order to do this. In this exercise you need to be able to say something about planning in your own country, in a very summarised way (One paragraph). You can think of aspects like: Who plans? Is planning centralised? Is there devolution/ subsidiarity? Is it top-down or bottom-up? Is there participation of citizens? Is it free of corruption? Is it effective? Why not?
3. Explain the role of Spatial Planners and Designers IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY. You need to read document number 3 in order to do this. You are not going to present this. Instead, you will be invited to play a game in which the information contained in the paper will be useful.
