Compiled by Nick Wates
Foreword by HRH The Prince of Wales.

German edition

Want to improve your village? Your town? Your city? Frustrated with conventional planning processes? Action Planning may be just what you are looking for.

All over world people have started organising special collaborative events to improve their surroundings. For a few intensive days, everybody concerned gets an opportunity to have their say and get involved; residents, businesses, professionals, politicians. Its effective and its fun.

The formula which makes this possible has become known as Action Planning. It involves skilful programming and a range of new techniques for allowing people from different walks of life to work creatively together.

This book - the first on the subject - tells you how to do it. It is aimed at anyone interested in the potential of Action Planning and includes detailed checklists for organisers.
