The ISOCARP2015 congress comes at a time of unprecedented global urbanization. True to its exploratory spirit, ISOCARP is staging a congress with a difference for its 50th anniversary.
The ISOCARP Awards will have a special configuration and importance in 2015, as our Society is celebrating 50 years of active presence in the realm of urban and regional planning. In this extraordinary year for ISOCARP, besides the classic and established ISOCARP Awards for Excellence and the Gerd Albers Award there will be a special 50 anniversary award, the ACC50 Sam van Embden Award.
This year 2015 it is 50 years ago that ISOCARP was founded.
A reason to look back and reflect, but also to celebrate and look forward!
