Urban Plan workshops come to Poland
The project is supported by Echo Investment, Tacit Investment, Coimpex and Vastint Poland
POLAND The Polish branch of international non-profit organisation Urban Land Institute has held pilot UrbanPlan workshops to encourage high school students the development of urban space.
The classes, which were hosted by the American School of Warsaw in Konstancin-Jeziorna just south of Warsaw, were attended by 32 high school students. In line with the guidelines set by trainers and experts representing the real estate, development and financial sectors, as well as by ULI members, the students submitted their own concepts for the development of sample city sections. Echo Investment, Tacit Investment, Coimpex and Vastint Poland were the partners of the Polish version of the competition. The organisers have announced that the competition will also be held in this country in the future. The UrbanPlan programme was devised in the United States a decade ago. The workshop editions that have been organised so far have been attended by over 27,000 students.

“Our programme is implemented all over the world, promoting education and facilitating careers in real estate. It helps young people understand the importance of revival and regeneration of urban areas in everyday life,” explained Karolina Kaim, a member of the board of the Urban Land Institute Poland.

John Banka, at the CEO of ULI Poland, also expressed his satisfaction with the workshop. “It was a great pleasure for me to observe the effort put in by the young participants and their profound engagement in the project. The ideas they proposed were genuine eye-openers. We are also impressed by the participants’ advanced knowledge,” he commented.
