ISOCARP invites the institutional members of ISOCARP, ISOCARP National Delegations, as well as national, regional and city governments, planning agencies, universities and research institutions to submit an Expression of Interest to host Legacy Programme for young planning professionals.
A particular focus and commitment of ISOCARP is on young generations through facilitating knowledge for better cities with the youth. The Young Planning Professionals’ Programme is a crucial component of ISOCARP’s dedication to promote and enhance the planning profession. The objective is to contribute to the knowledge base and improve skills of young professionals, the future leaders of our profession. For over two decades, ISOCARP has been organising International YPP Workshops, which provide young and ambitious planning professionals with an opportunity to work in a multi-cultural setting, share their experiences on real-life planning problems, and exchange ideas and learn from each other as well as from senior colleagues.
Thus, it is the time to join up forces to motivate young planning professionals’, particularly from the underdeveloped regions of the world, participation in ISOCARP’s future through alternative ways of resource mobilisation and to stimulate collaborative activities. The goal of the Legacy Programme is to stimulate collaboration between ISOCARP and interested parties in order to mentor and sponsor young planning professionals to attend international young planning professionals’ programme events. Such as our close relationships with the UN, UNESCO, UN-Habitat, the active facilitation of sponsorship mechanism through our members will help in increasing effectiveness and impact territory of the programme particularly in priority geographies.
