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. The topic of the congress is Cities Save the World. Let’s Reinvent Planning. The spirit of this congress is to comprehend and contextualise the role of cities as engines of economy. In understanding this role it is important to build upon an exploratory, international, cross-cultural and innovative attitude that always has characterised ISOCARP initiatives. In this extraordinary year for ISOCARP besides the classic and established ISOCARP Awards for Excellence and the Gerd Albers Award there will be the ACC50 Sam van Embden Award.
