IFHP joins Global Planners Network

IFHP is proud to announce that we now join forces with the GPN: Global Planners Network.
The GPN is a coalition of international and national organizations in the field of planning, including:
  • American Planning Association (APA)
  • Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP)  
  • Commonwealth Association of Planners (CAP)
  • Irish Planning Institute (IPI)
  • New Zealand Planning Institute (NZPI)
  • Planning Institute Australia (PIA)
  • Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI)
  • International Society of City and Regional Planners (ISOCARP)
The network's vision is to, through a collaboration of the international planning profession, contribute to the creation and maintenance of inclusive, safe, healthy and sustainable human settlements.
GPN writes: "Planners and their organizations throughout the world provide leadership in addressing many societal issues. Often, challenges and successes cross geographic, national, and institutional borders. Best practices are often shared. Requests for assistance, too, occur through personal or institutional networks." 
IFHP’s first collaborative action under the auspices of GPN will be at Habitat III in Quito.
More information on IFHP at HIII with GNP is yet to come: Stayed tuned!
