2017 programme now confirmed!
The last 12 months have seen dramatic changes in the political climate. The government has a new agenda to tackle the escalating housing crisis and, on a global scale, Habitat 3’s New Urban Agenda readdresses the way we build, manage, and live in cities, with the vision to end poverty, reduce inequalities and promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth.
On 21 June 2017, expert speakers from around the world will come together at the Planning Convention to address the question ‘How can planners contribute to building a stronger, inclusive and sustainable future for all?’
From devolution and housing, to smart and sustainable planning, our packed programme will offer delegates the opportunity to hear from key influencers in the industry, learn from each other, network, discuss, debate and find creative solutions to the most pressing problems facing the profession.
Other highlights include sessions on planning for disaster relief, the night-time economy, skills & careers, and an audience-led ‘Ask the Chief Planners’ session.
