... did you remember it was 2010 World Town Planning Day on Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 November 2010?
For the second year in a row, eight planning organisations including RTPI and CAP, came together to support a joint "virtual" conference for planners from around the globe in honour of World Town Planning Day. It was conducted completely online as part of efforts to reduce the carbon footprint resulting from presenter/participant travel. This year's conference brought together leading practitioners and experts on the topic Healthy People, Healthy Places, Healthy Planet: Integrating Food Systems into the Planning Process.
