When was the Award established?
The George Pepler International Award, which was offered for the first time in 1973, was established to commemorate the great interest that Sir George Pepler, one of the founders of the Royal Town Planning Institute in 1914, had in encouraging younger people in the planning profession. The Award was established to "encourage young people of all nationalities who had a desire to serve their fellow human beings through the medium of town and country planning".
The 2018 winner is Natalya Palit for her submission 'What can the UK learn from Vienna with regards to adopting a gender mainstreaming approach to shape built outcomes?'.
