Subject outline

In this subject, students will explore how social, cultural and religious needs of an increasingly culturally, ethnically, religiously and linguistically diverse society can be addressed through secular planning policy and strategies that reflect Australia's colonial history. In the context of high levels of migration from diverse countries into Australia, changing religious demographics influenced by migration as well transition within resident populations, it is necessary that future planners have the knowledge and skills to anticipate and cater to diverse cultural and social groups. It is necessary to identify such needs, and their spatial expression, within an intra-generational context of migration so planners can articulate the issues and advocate for more equitable and sustainable social infrastructure. This subject addresses the Latrobe's global citizenship essential.
