Article: Greg Young, The Culturization of Planning

2008 SAGE Publications
(Los Angeles, London, New Delhi and Singapore)
Vol 7(1): 71–91
DOI: 10.1177/1473095207082035
Culture as an organizing concept and framework offers planning a new, deeper and more sustainable foundation. The fact that culture constitutes and is constituted by our geographies, histories and societies, is expanding, and is the world’s leading intellectual resource, can be the basis for a new positionality for planning. A positionality of this kind is proposed as a new paradigm, and tagged with the neologism of ‘culturization’.

Book: Greg Young, Reshaping Planing with Culture

2008, Ashgate Publishing CompanyPlanning is described as being increasingly sidelined by the impacts of neo-liberal restructuring. At the same time, ‘culture’ is nowadays seen as the world’s key intellectual resource possessing new creative weight in sociological, economic and environmental terms. This book argues that, in the light of this cultural turn, there is the opportunity to re-position planning and proposes an original, practical and robust system of ‘culturisation’. Culturisation is defined as the ethical, critical and reflexive integration of culture into planning and potentially other areas such as public administration, corporate strategy and development thinking. Cultural theory, planning theory, global governance policy and recent, innovative culturised practices are all explored to this end. The new theoretical and practical approach put forward shows how deeper, richer and more relevant ideas about culture can be utilized in planning, and is illustrated with international examples and two major case studies detailing new vistas for a refurbished planning.
