Young Planning Professionals’ Workshop – Wuhan 2011


Since 1991 the objective of the YPPs’ Workshops has been to bring together young professional urban planners from all parts of the world. The workshops provide an opportunity to work together as a closely-knit team. The Workshop has its own specific theme which is related to the main Congress theme. The theme relates to a concrete area/project. The workshops are hands-on workshops establishing a good working relationship with young colleagues from all parts of the world and aiming at final findings and results in a very short period of time.

Workshop Topic

The topic of the 2011 annual YPP Workshop is the Wuhan High-Speed Railway Station Area.
