As the Canadian Institute of Planners enters its second century in 2019, it will also be looking ahead—contemplating and considering the future of the planning profession and practice. Throughout the next year, we will engage aspiring and current planners to contribute their diverse experiences and perspectives in a four-part series of conversations. The second Forward Planning conversation takes place February 22, 2019, at the National Capital Commission’s Urbanism Lab. All conversations will be live streamed and recorded, with the proceedings used to develop a final paper for release on World Town Planning Day, November 8, 2019. Can't make the event? Join us via our live stream. Missed part one in our series? View the conversation here.
