World Town Planning Day

World Town Planning Day (WTPD) is an international day celebrating the accomplishments of planners and their contributions to their communities. On November 8, planners around the world participate in World Town Planning Day activities annually, a practice that began in 1949.

We invite you to take this opportunity to spread awareness about the significance of planning in your communities. APPI Regional Event Committees are proud ambassadors and host various events to connect planners, the public, and government locally and nationally. 

Follow the global World Town Planning Day account on Twitter @wtpdonline. Share your thoughts on social media via the hashtags, #WTPD, or #WorldTownPlanningDay, #WorldUrbanismDay.
