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!

Download the Revue de la S.F.U. about the Foundation of ISOCARP, January 1965.
The 50th Anniversary Celebrations were launched during the 2014 Congress in Gdynia, Poland. With the help of the members it was possible to organize events and other activities the whole year through. The celebrations culminated in the 2015 Congress which was held in The Netherlands, where ISOCARP was founded in 1965.
In today’s changing world a society as ISOCARP with committed members from academia, government and the private sector is needed more than ever.
Several National Delegations got involved in the different activities in their cities and regions.
Thank you very much.
