Dr Julie Rudner

Julie is interested in the gap between policy and the lived experience. Through research, consulting and teaching, Julie explores children's views and experience of their environments, promotes cities as sites for experiential learning and supports children's citizenship through participation in planning and urban design.  She seeks to understand how adults and children can expand their confidence and skills to encourage children's active exploration and engagement with their environments.  Her students are encouraged to critically appraise community planning and development in richer and poorer countries – whilst grappling with issues of power, professional ethics and the role of planning and community development practitioners. She has over 10 years professional experience as a planner and consultant.
