he goal is to understand the reason, mission and specifics of regional and municipal development in the context of European Union as well as Czech Republic, and of planning as a tool of development. Students should know the core European concepts of regional and municipal development. A particular attention will be paid to the Middle-European planning culture and planning system, which is rooted in the mutual interactions between spatial, urban, strategic and environmental planning. Students should perceive development from the perspectives of different stakeholders and professions, and understand the need of cooperation, participation and democracy in practice.


Requirements for semester: active participation at the course (in case of corona online form), developing development plans in teams

Requirements for exam: oral exam including the individual defence of the development plan and additional theory-based questions (in case of corona two ways could be used: preferably defence online via MSteams or alternatively via written comments/answers in delivered second versions of development plans)
