Online Workshop: Culture and Sustainable Development

This workshop can be applied to the UBC Certificate in Cultural Planning.

If sustainable development has become an essential aspiration of public policy makers, then the question of whether a cultural dimension to planning may be the key to most effectively achieving this goal is perhaps the fundamental issue of our time. This online workshop will cover the following themes related to the topic of culture and sustainable development:

  1. All Planning is Cultural: The need to apply a cultural perspective to all policy and the danger in creating a cultural silo.
  2. Speaking Up for the Arts: Why these activities are essential in human development.
  3. Where Cultural Development is Most Needed: The impact of bureaucracy on development and how it may be countered.

This online workshop is designed to fill the gap between a typical short webinar and a longer online course. Each workshop is led by an international expert, combines lectures and small group discussion, and meets online for two (2) hours, once a week for three weeks. There is also an online discussion board for sharing information and group discussion during the three weeks.  There is no grading.
