Work with us on a shared Congress Declaration: Contribute NOW until 4 February 2021!

For the duration of the Congress, all participants are encouraged to reflect on Congress Sessions and to share thoughts, experiences, and ideas.

In addition, please visit the Virtual Meeting Place (during networking hours) where you can discuss informally, or join Declaration Round Tables hosted by the ISOCARP Cyber Planner's Lab!

In the spirit of inclusion, this opening Declaration represents an open working draft - a starting point, from which ISOCARP and its co-hosting partners UN-Habitat and Urban Economy Forum, invite all Congress Participants to take a seat at the virtual planning table and contribute over the course of the Congress: to ensure a truly inclusive and collaborative Congress and a shared final Congress Declaration! 

The resulting Congress Declaration will be presented at the closing of the 2020 World Planning Congress on 4 February 2021.
