Urban Injustices Did you ever ask yourselves why does your street look the way it does? Why is your workplace designed the way it is? Who decides where your bus or highway will run through on your way? It's all about urban planning and land use policy. As geographer David Harvey once put it: Land use policies are not just technical matters; they are deeply political choices that shape the distribution of power and resources within society. Now imagine how urban planning works in a land already full of complexities and conflicts – Israelis and Palestinians, Mizrahim and Ashkenazim, religion vs secularism, New Olim vs native-born Israelis, rural vs urban, and so many more. Former PM Ariel Sharon saw Israel as a "spirit as unyielding as the desert sands, stretching endlessly towards a horizon of peace and prosperity". While it might seem like the sand is infinite, the land in Israel is definitely the one thing that is finite, and therefore, precious and very coveted. In this course, we will get to know the basics of urban planning and land use policies in general, and dive into its implementation within the state of Israel along the years and try to comprehend how Israeli society today, in all its shades, was very much shaped or influenced by the way the physical space was designed and allocated, focusing on a different aspect in each lesson. As urban planning is political, language is also political, and throughout the different topics, we will discover how reality can be shaped by combining terminology and urban planning. *** Early Bird Prices Start at - 1200 NIS - Until 03/03 Regular Price Start at - 1300 NIS - Until 24/03 Late Price Starts at - 1400 NIS - Until first lesson of the course We have made a small change in our pricing structure and are now offering a sliding scale in order to give you the opportunity to donate 100 or 200 shekels when you buy a course.
