“World Town Planning Day,” also known as “World Urbanism Day,” was instituted in 1949 by Professor Carlos Maria della Paolera (University of Buenos Aires) to advance public and professional interest in planning. It is celebrated in more than 30 countries on four continents on 8 November. It is a special day to recognise and promote the role of planning in creating livable cities and to draw attention to the impacts of urban development. It presents an opportunity to look at planning from a global perspective.
It is also an opportunity to acknowledge our UQ|UP team members for their excellent work as planning educators, researchers, and practitioners.
Thank you for your dedication!
