In this short film Ritchie Somerville (Head of Strategy, Data Driven Innovation Initiative, University of Edinburgh) and Paul Lawson (Planner - SG PAD) talk about the exciting future landscape of planning.

They discuss how the digital renaissance will bring more energy into the shaping and creation of place, enticing younger people into the planning profession.

The Data-Driven Innovation initiative (DDI) is delivered by the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University for the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal.

DDI is an innovation network helping organisations tackle challenges for industry and society by doing data right to support Edinburgh in its ambition to become the data capital of Europe
