Design Thinking In Planning Your feedback is needed!
The American Planning Association hosted an APA Learn Course titled APA Design Thinking Series during the first half of 2022. The course was designed as a series of workshops for participants to gain an immersive learning experience with opportunities to collaborate virtually with other peers across the country.
Design thinking can be applied as a planning method towards addressing systemic issues in our communities. In the course, the presenters focused on how expressing innovation, through design thinking, and strategies can respond to post-pandemic impacts that translated into actionable steps and creative responses to mitigate negative effects and to capitalize on opportunities that it presents.
APA would like your feedback to see if you would be interested in participating in future discussions and assisting in the development of an APA Interest Group dedicated to Design Thinking In Panning.

Tuesday, December 6
12 - 1 p.m. CST
Milwaukee’s housing challenges have been a major focus of Joe Peterangelo’s work at the Wisconsin Policy Forum over the last several years. He has published reports aimed at understanding and addressing the city’s high rate of evictions and racial homeownership disparities and taken a close look at an effort to revitalize Milwaukee’s Amani neighborhood through a range of housing improvements. He has also broadly examined the affordable housing activities of the city of Milwaukee and other public and private sector organizations to identify opportunities to increase their collective impact. Joe will discuss this work and how it has been used by planners, policymakers, and civic leaders working to improve housing conditions in Milwaukee.
