World Town Planning Day

On World Town Planning Day, on 8 November every year, planners and communities all over the world come together to celebrate how good planning improves the lives of people and benefits society at large, creating places where to live, work and play together.

Argentinian professor Carlos María della Paolera started World Town Planning Day in Buenos Aires in 1949.

Today planners from over 30 countries celebrate World Town Planning Day with lectures, school competitions, fundraising, charity events, planning awards and street festivals.
