RTPI West Midlands Young Planners is part of the Young Planners network and provides a forum within which aspiring young planners in the area can develop their interest in planning.

What do young planners do?

We feel that we have a very important role to play in promoting planning to people during all stages of their careers. There are lots of different things we do including:

  • Making presentations to universities on the role of planning
  • Social events including drinks nights, BBQs, pub quizzes in a range of locations across the West Midlands
  • Seminars on topics of interest in planning

Why should you get involved?

  • Foster professional relationships
  • Network with other professions
  • Develop soft skills in project management & leadership
  • Contributes to career progression
  • Promote Planning
  • Inspire the next generation
  • Share experiences
  • Support L-APC Candidates
  • Have fun and socialise with like-minded people
