US Planning Isolationism: Bruce Stiftel heeds lessons from planners abroad

External News Details

"With widespread political resistance to planned change in our country, with many forward looking planning programs and experiments in widespread settings, with global interconnectedness driving economic and environmental outcomes, and with rapid growth in the quantity and quality of higher education in many countries, the days when US planners could ignore practice and scholarship communities elsewhere in the world and still do our work well are over.   We have to find better ways to learn from and work together with our planning colleagues who speak other languages and who work in other countries." - Bruce Stiftel, Planetizen Interchange, Dec 2010.
