Masters in Arts in Karlskrona in Sweden. Joint Masters Programme in European Spatial Planning, Environmental Policies and Regional Development The influence of EU policies and actions on spatial and environmental planning in the EU member states is ever increasing. European regions are more and more interlinked, and cooperation across national borders is now a routine aspect of the work of spatial and environmental planners. There are considerable differences in how planning is conducted across Europe, and planners are increasingly required to communicate across cultural and institutional boundaries. This European dimension of planning requires a new generation of spatial and environmental planners, who are aware of and can respond to as well as influence EU and international policy, are sensitive to cultural and institutional differences across Europe, and are capable to cooperate with spatial planners in other European countries. The Joint Masters Programme in European Spatial Planning, Environmental Policies and Regional Development (‘PLANET Europe’) is the first integrated European Masters programme that offers a comprehensive education in the rich and dynamic area of European spatial planning. PLANET Europe gives students from all over the world the opportunity to acquire important skills and knowledge in European spatial planning, while at the same time benefiting from Europe’s cultural and linguistic diversity. Learning outcomes In addition the nationally regulated goals, which can be found in paragraph 8, the following goals apply for the education.
