In this thesis project we explore the present municipal planning practice from a multi-level perspective as well as engage in a case study surrounding the development of an urban neighborhood in the Danish city of Albertslund. Through a transition designerly approach we seek to explore the present dynamic network of actors in and around the field with the aim of understanding the actors expressed matters of concern, values, and hindering’s. Some of the central actors are, hereafter, enrolled in a digital co-designerly workshop where we through knowledge sharing of best practice, envisioning of opportunities, and organizational mapping, try to specify the particular circumstances that enable a diverse set of values, to be offered and gained, in urban spaces. Following this, we synthesize our exploration and participatory engagement, to develop an extensive set of interrelated recommendations, outlining the values and their associated benefits, that one can aim to establish in different urban planning areas, their triggers, and finally their indicators. The intention for these recommendations is to equip Danish urban planners, in their quest to develop inclusive, livable, and sustainable cities.
