The North West Young Planners cover one of the largest regions in the UK and organise a busy calendar of events.  Events are focused in Manchester and Liverpool, but we also have several events a year across the rest of the region.  Events include CPD talks and tours, and networking and social events.

If you would like to receive newsletters and updates about NWYP events, sign up to our mailing list.

Through a range of inter-professional initiatives, we also work to promote planning as a profession both within schools and universities and across the built environment network.
