Introduction
Students of Civic Design learn how to design spaces and places in which people can live and work comfortably, taking into account social, economic and environmental needs. Graduates of Civic Design help companies and governments to make difficult decisions on the use of land and how it should be developed. In recent years, Civic Design has become particularly concerned with the preservation and impact of the natural environment: for example, how we deal with the growing amount of rubbish in our cities and concerns about flooding. The UK is preoccupied with housing people in the most efficient way, because land is scarce. In China, the density of population in some parts of the country is much greater than in the UK and so efficient and effective use of space is also important. The rate of development in China, means that good planning is essential. The programme at XJTLU has been designed to help students appreciate the similarities and differences between planning in China and the UK.
