This exciting lecture is aimed at all Geography A-Level students and aspiring Year 11 pupils. Students interested in urban planning, regeneration, and architecture are also advised to attend.
The talk will develop a synoptic understanding for A-level Geography specifications. Led by researcher Callum Campbell from The University of Manchester, the purpose of this lecture is to provide students with a critical insight into the relationship between placemaking and urban regeneration. Using the Manchester-based developer Urban Splash as a lens, the talk will examine how the role of urban design has become a key tool in shaping everyday places. Investigating the impacts the talk will consider what social and cultural changes and interactions occur as a result of these new tactics towards city planning. Are we really shaping places for people, or are other motives and factors at play?
This event is free of charge but limited to 65 places. Please try to book, although not essential. Students are welcome to bring others interested.
