WTPD Online Conference 2012

Information and communication technology greatly enhance our ability to connect with people through mobile phones, the internet and other systems and networks, presenting both a challenge and an opportunity to the planning and design professions. We need to keep up with the advances, meet the challenges, and ensure that the spaces and places we design make the most of the opportunities.

This Online Conference will provide ideas from around the world about how advances in technology shape our environment. You will be offered insights to help improve the built environment - our cities, towns, rural communities - and the natural environment.  You can share ways to use technology to encourage connections within society and make our communities more 'livable'.

If you have never taken part in an online conference before, we invite you to try it. Online conferencing is an easy way to discuss a key topic with people around the world from the comfort and privacy of your own home or office: no polluting travel required. You need only provide a computer with good internet access, a microphone and speakers (often built in, or a good headset will not set you back much).
