Purpose:
The aim of the program is to prepare specialists who are competent to coordinate spatial planning processes or who participate in other key roles in the spatial planning process (e.g. expert of specific fields). Training in Spatial Planning and Environment is designed based on the competencies listed in the professional standard "Planner for spatial development and environment" coordinated by the Estonian Planners Association. The program provides spatial planners with knowledge and skills in three key areas - social geography, environmental sciences, and geoinformatics - as well as administrative and collaboration skills necessary to coordinate planning processes. The program enables the future spatial planner to adequately connect local and regional development to social trends and global environmental changes and supports the planner with contemporary digital planning skills.

Outcome:
The student (1) is able to relate the development of a locality to global social and economic changes and understands the role of a place in global climate and environmental change, (2) is able to identify the need for data and analyses in order to develop contemporary planning solutions, (3) knows the techniques of spatial analysis and visualization and is able to lead digital innovations in the spatial planning process, (4) is familiar with the organizational framework of spatial planning in Estonia and elsewhere in the world and is ready to organize the work of a multi-disciplinary and multicultural planning team.
