Planner as educator: A vision of a new practitioner
MetadataShow full item record
This paper examines and compares the visionary tradition in planning and community education for their possible relevance to "emerging futures" for planners. It suggests the need for a new practitioner who will combine the holism of visionary planning with the empowerment strategies of community education, and contrasts this with the traditional model of the "expert" planner. The authors describe characteristics of the new practitioner, as drawn from the two traditions, and relate them to the challenges of the coming decade.
