Conference Overview:

Changes in how we live, communicate, do business, move and interact are taking place at an ever-increasing pace. In the face of these changes, communities are striving to transform to meet the need of their residents, placing pressure on planners to facilitate rapid change by re-imagining processes and requirements and adopting new technologies. Planners now face the challenge of harnessing a need for change as an opportunity to positively shift the way we design, shape and protect our natural and built environments.
