World Town Planning Day 2021

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. 


We invite you to take this opportunity to spread awareness about the significance of planning in your communities.
