World Town Planning Day

World Town Planning Day (WTPD) is an international day celebrating the accomplishments of planners and their contributions to their communities. On November 8, planners around the world participate in World Town Planning Day activities annually, a practice that began in 1949. 



World Town Planning Day – a Message from the Global Planners Network, 2020

"This year World Town Planning Day marks the end of the first year of the “Decade of Action”. We must continue to provide leadership to our communities and empower them to engage in climate action and planning for the world we need and can sustain. We also need to be looking out for and supporting each other as the global pandemic has taken a toll on the mental health of our colleagues and communities." - The Global Planners Network, 2020
