Urban Design Summer School

A quick heads up and apology in advance. Over the next couple of weeks, my Twitter stream will be full of the CABE Urban Design Summer School hashtag #UDSS10. The Summer school takes place from 11th – 14th July here in sunny Birmingham and this year, has been organised by MADE. There are around 100 international delegates made up of Urban Designers, Architects, Planners and local authority representatives along with around 30 local young people keen to learn more about Urban Design.

Along with MADE’s resident Twitter users David Tittle @dxMADE and Anthony Ruck @anthonymade, I hope to get the Summer School delegates interacting online. MADE will also be tweeting on a general level via @MADEplaces.

We’ll be getting interactive by using Twitter as a way of sharing thoughts, comments and ideas over the 4 days. We also hope that it’ll be a social tool to support all the face-to-face networking that will be going on. There will be a Twitterfall projected during the event so those who can’t attend can follow what’s going on, and those in the room can follow what their peers are up to.

So excuse the hashtagging in my Tweets, or if you like, join in the conversation and connect with lots of new and interesting people!
