World Town Planning Day

November 8th is the annual celebration of World Town Planning Day. Every year, planners around the world engage in activities on or around November 8th to raise awareness of the importance of planning in their communities.

Planners in about 30 countries mark this day by talking to community or student groups, or sponsoring activities that highlight the importance of planning.

Planners also visit local high schools, participate in student events at universities, hold public open houses and displays, and sponsor events, such as tree planting.
