Description

Planning ​​practice ​and education ​​focuses a lot on equity issues. This conversation will focus on advanc​ing​ the practice of planning with an equity lens that is intentionally inclusive of Indigenous peoples​ and ​Native Nations​ across the United States​. ​We will briefly explore how ​to better integrate ​​Native sovereignty and other issues into planning education​.​​ ​As a field, we might be able to look towards work that’s being done ​elsewhere, ​in Canada, Australia and New Zealand​,​ for guidance on how to develop as a planning field with regards to Native Nations and communities. ​This First Friday will begin with two brief presentations and then open for a discussion focused on planning education.​
