ISOCARP – International Society of City and Regional Planners

Founded in 1965, the International Society of City and Regional Planners (ISOCARP) is a global association of professional city and regional planners, policy makers, and academics in the field. Our network brings together individual and institutional members from 85+ countries with the vision to make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable through integrative participatory urban and territorial planning. In 2016, the Society initiated the ISOCARP Institute as a research spin-off for generating and disseminating knowledge for better cities and territories.
The mission of ISOCARP is to mobilise professional urban and regional planners to co-implement the vision enshrined in the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda by:
• creating a global network of practitioners
• fostering planning research, training, and education
• encouraging the professional exchange of knowledge
• promoting the planning profession and excellence in practice in all its forms
• developing and maintaining altruistic relations between members
• enhancing public awareness and understanding of major planning issues at the global level
• supporting and protecting planning interest and professional planners
