The nature of spatial planning is changing in response to the challenges of an urbanizing world, growing environmental and socio-economic challenges and climate change. In this concluding chapter a set of aggregate lessons from the fifteen different contributions is developed. There are four surprisingly coherent messages that bring about transformative changes in contemporary planning education each of which are reflected in several of the contributions ranging from transdisciplinarity to the growing potential and role of planning (education) in the development of expressions of the future university. The authors also reflect on the practicalities of pedagogical change and the demands these represent and place on educators and their institutions. A second section looks at ongoing educational change through a historical lens and considers the magnitude of change and the potential impact of recent external factors such as the 2020 health pandemic. A third and final, forward-looking section, contemplates the kinds of transformative changes that are desirable and needed for an informed crafting of future planning education.
