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.
