How will we unlock and build back better cities and communities? Urban and territorial planning is the vaccine. It can only be effective when applied worldwide and be made equally accessible to all people. The new planning vaccine needs to enable innovative ideas and strategies to achieve more sustainable territories.

The Congress theme ‘Planning Unlocked’ seeks to unlock planning challenges as we plan for a post-pandemic world of “New Times, Better Places and Stronger Communities”. As ISOCARP 2021 Congress goes hybrid, we strive to deliver yet again an inclusive and high-quality congress for the community of urban and regional planners as well as attendees across different disciplines, time zones, and cities, within the current global health context.

Submit your abstracts for research papers, case studies, projects, session proposal and forums before May 31, 2021 (10PM UTC)! Share this call within your networks and visit our website:  doha2021.isocarp.org for more information.
