ISOCARP: ISOCARP’s next congress “Cool Planning: Changing Climate and Our Urban Future.” – Bodø / Norway, October 1-5, 2018

On this warming planet, with its population more than 50% urban, we urgently need cooler cities and towns. And good urban planning can help deliver them. The aim of ISOCARP’s 54th Annual Congress is no small feat: the Society is calling on the best and brightest of the planning profession to come to Bodø, Norway and tell us how to save civilization. Nothing less.


ISOCARP’s world congress will debate about the future of our cities, climate change challenges, and provide insight on urban planning and design for climate change action from international and multi-disciplinary perspectives of benefit to practicing planners, local government officials, private sector experts, environmental managers, educators, students, and the public. ISOCARP invites you to be part of this singular experience of a lifetime that is certain to be both meaningful and memorable. Help implement the “Climate Action” Sustainable Development Goal: “Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.”
