2010 CABE urban design summer school
This year the CABE urban design summer school returns to Birmingham, a city recognised internationally for successful regeneration. From the multi-award winning Brindley Place development that put the city centre back on the map and re-imagined Birmingham's wealth of waterways to the on-going renewal of its old industrial sites and social housing stock, Birmingham is a pioneer of design-led regeneration.

Invest in your personal skills and knowledge in the key interdisciplinary area of urban design. In times of change it is those who have specialist knowledge and broad place-making skills who will find and retain jobs.
Invest in private sector skills: Many firms are trying to catch the upturn with slimmed-down teams. Help your people work more effectively and gain vital skills and knowledge in place-making and sustainable design.
Invest in public sector skills: Planning and regeneration departments will be under pressure in the coming months. Make sure all your people have the skills and knowledge required to deliver quality sustainable places.
The city and the region still face many challenges and, as well as visiting flagship developments, delegates will benefit from working on real sites to create sustainable communities out of post-industrial dereliction, social deprivation and highway domination.
The summer school has 130 spaces and is open to both UK and international delegates. Over the last seven years it has welcomed participants from as far away as Trinidad, Australia and Slovenia.
