World Town Planning Day 2020
November 8, 2020
Every person and community in the world today is impacted by a deepening climate and biodiversity crisis. If we do not dramatically accelerate climate action, the irreversible degradation of much of the natural world and impact on communities and economies globally are unparalleled catastrophes in the making.
This backdrop has been gravely compounded by the current health, economic, and social crises since the outbreak of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Planning can and will help us to respond to our changing economies and lifestyles. It will support communities to adapt, thrive, and build resilience for a truly sustainable future.
