The current globalization calls for a globalizing pedagogy of planning education. By "globalization' is meant a process whereby certain megatrends are made universal to the human condition, although they are differently experienced by diverse cultures and activities and at various territorial scales. The author gives the rationale for a global approach to planning education, indicates the main characteristics of the current globalization, discusses past attempts at cultural universalism, and pedagogical innovations, and outlines some of the main features of a globalizing pedagogy for planning education. Some of the major challenges that the planning profession faces for adopting a global approach are also identified. -from Author
