What does the Commonwealth mean to planning and planners in 2018?
Our Yorkshire event, which is free for full-time students, will focus on planning challenges in the Commonwealth and how they are being addressed by the RTPI and the Commonwealth Association of Planners (CAP).
Speaker Clive Harridge, of the Commonwealth Association of Planners, will offer an insight into how we tackle some of the world's biggest challenges, including climate change, poverty and rapid urbanisation.
Many parts of the Commonwealth are experiencing huge rates of urban growth whilst at the same time suffering poverty and vulnerability to extreme weather conditions and climate change.
Planners have a massive role to play in helping address these challenges – by attending this insightful talk you will find out more about what is being done to create a better future for all.
The event coincides with the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) to the UK in April and is a must for planners and student planners.
