ISOCARP – ITACUS Young Professional’s Think Deep Programme

Together with our global partner ITACUS (Committee on Underground Space), ISOCARP has published ‘Think Deep: Planning, development and use of underground space in cities’, a book containing five case studies by planners on underground space. ISOCARP and ITACUS would like to continue the co-operation with a sequel to this book containing up to five real-life examples of planning for an urban underground future showcasing various cities. The core idea is to combine the proven methodology of ISOCARP’s YPPP with the concept of working cross-disciplinarily on underground planning issues. The results of the foreseen five YPTDP case studies will be collated into a follow-up publication to Think Deep and presented at the ITA WTC, ISOCARP World Congresses and the ACUUS World Congress. We already organised 2 programmes (Glasgow and Wroclaw) and we are actively looking for another 3 cities. Is your city interested?

International Tunnelling and Underground Space Association’s Committee (ITACUS) sees ISOCARP’s YPP programme as an ideal example of how to actively involve ITA Young Members and make them part of a cross-disciplinary cooperation with ISOCARP Young Planners. It ties in directly with the co-operation the ITA Young Members are seeking with the ITA committees and more specifically, to the new ITACUS joint activity group on a programme for young members. ITACUS is therefore now actively setting up of a Young Professional’s Think Deep Programme for young members (YPTDP), working together with ISOCARP. The core idea is to combine the proven methodology of ISOCARP’s YPPP with the concept of working cross-disciplinarily on underground planning issues. The results of the foreseen five YPTDP case studies will be collated into a follow-up publication to Think Deep and presented at the ITA WTC, ISOCARP World Congresses and the ACUUS World Congress.
