Transforming the landscape of how planning research and scholarship is communicated with impact

The Urban Squeeze is a highly innovative and acclaimed radio show from nationally renowned planning experts Tony Matthews and Jason Byrne. The Urban Squeeze is making an outstanding contribution to public understanding of diverse land-use, strategic, environmental, energy and transport planning issues in Australia.

The Urban Squeeze evolved out of the award-winning planning courses at Griffith University. It is uniquely designed to translate planning concepts, principles and research into terms that can be understood by soccer mums and scholars alike.
