How can planners accelerate ideas into action for urban sustainability?
- Who should be the planners for the cities of tomorrow?
- What should be their knowledge, skills and attitudes?
- How should the capabilities of planners for tomorrow be developed?
Planners for Tomorrow (P4T) is a year-long, internet-supported dialogue that will result in a two-day forum at the UBC School of Community and Regional Planning (SCARP) June 14-16, 2006.
The P4T Forum will be held immediately before the World Planners Congress (June 17-20) and the U.N. World Urban Forum (June 19-23). The Forum will be the annual meeting of the Canadian Association of Planning Students (CAPS), which on this unique occasion is inviting participation by students from planning schools across North America and around the world.
The ongoing dialogue is facilitated by SCARP students and seeks to engage participation by planning students, academics and practitioners from around the world.
The goal of the P4T Dialogue and two-day forum is to generate recommendations from students to the World Planners Congress (WPC) and the World Urban Form (WUF) on Planners for Tomorrow.
