Young Planning Professionals’ Workshop – Brisbane 2013

banner_brisbaneSince 1991 the objective of ISOCARP’s Young Planning Professionals’ Workshops has been to bring together young professional urban planners from all parts of the world. The YPP Workshops provide an opportunity to work together as a closely-knit team. The YPP Workshops are organised in the week preceding the annual ISOCARP Congress and focus specifically on the Congress’s main theme, but relating it to a concrete area/project. The workshops are hands-on and aimed at establishing a good working relationship with young colleagues from all parts of the world, while working towards results in a very short period of time.

Workshop Topic
The topic of the 2013 annual workshop is “Howard Smith Wharves: Inner city rejuvenation and urban connectivity”.
