Water and Planning: The Fluid Challenge

Professional planning associations from around the world come together annually to celebrate World Town Planning Day with an international online conference. This year’s theme is water.

This Online Conference will bring together ideas from around the world about how we plan for communities in response to water-related issues. We have speakers that provide perspectives a wide range of multi-disciplinary material. We will offer insights to help improve the built environment - our cities, towns, rural communities – and the natural environment.
