Today we will look at the different roles of urban planning.

Then, we will look at the Tokyo Olympic plan to answer question 2 of the handout.

In groups:


  • Look at the Tokyo Olympic plan
  • List the major changes that will happen
  • Create a + – i list
  • Think of problems that may occur with this plan
    • Who might be opposed to some of this plan?


Research a group of people who are opposed to an aspect of the Tokyo Olympics taking place. It could be about building development, government spending, environmental issues etc.

List their main concerns over the Tokyo Olympic development plan.
