World Town Planning Day is celebrated in 30 countries on four continents each November. It is a special day to recognize and promote the role of planning in creating livable communities.

World Town Planning Day presents an excellent opportunity to look at planning from a global perspective and for planners around the world to consider planning challenges and solutions around the globe on that day.
