I've been quite engaged with this discussion about planning in regard to sustainable practices that nurture our communities as people-centered (that's all people) rather than technologically-obsessed (instead of the intentional use of machines).
Trouble is, the conversation has been going on only inside of my head and a few ear-flattened friends. So I want to come jump into your pond, but I don't know where to jump onto the first lily pad.
My question is, for any who care to contribute: "What Masters in Urban and Regional Planning grad programs support the creation of innovation solutions/alternatives to the kinds of planning issues discussed in the Cantina here?"
And "Is a MURP-grad best equipped to tackling these problems? Is there another degree more suited for effective action?" (I want to be Philosopher King, but I can't seem to find any programs for it.) My BA is in Philosophy and English and I'm willing to move anywhere in the U.S. (I'm currently in Lancaster,PA, the site of fast disappearing farmland.)
I welcome any and all suggestions.
