World Town Planning Day

On World Town Planning Day, every 8th November, planners and communities 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 planning on World Town Planning Day with lectures, school competitions, fund raising, charity events, planning awards and street festivals.
