Reform, restructuring and renewal

This has been a year of positive change for the International Society of City and Regional Planners.

Progress, achievements and challenges
Report from the ISOCARP Board to Members for the year 2018-2019

At the Special General Meeting during the World Planning Congress in Norway in 2018, members voted strongly in favour of adopting the updated Constitution.

  • There were lively debates about small specific changes – see the minutes of the 2018 Special General Meeting.
  • In many ways, the Constitution returned to the traditional structures of ISOCARP, updated for a global, online network of city and regional planners.

The next step was a new approach to membership: all members are equal, all members pay the same flat fee, and all members may vote in elections and at online General Meetings.

  • The new membership regulation was posted to the public area of Planetary (this website) and members were able to discuss the new approach and vote on it.
  • The new membership regulation was overwhelmingly supported in a vote by members.

Then came the Board elections, with a record number of candidates reflecting the vitality of the Society.

The result of this renewal and reform gave us a sound basis for growth and new initiatives.

  • The fundamental basis of our future success – as a network of value to city and regional planners everywhere – includes the legal foundations of our day-to-day operations.
  • Those fundamental legal foundations are shown in the diagram.
