Royal Town Planning Institute

RTPI South West International Group work with the RTPI International Committee to address an understanding of planning’s role in tackling some of the biggest global challenges such as urbanisation in the developing world; climate change; sustainable development. They look to highlight opportunities for planning practice overseas – through multi-laterals ; bi-laterals; charities and not-for profit organisations; and the private sector. The group hope to enable a two way flow of knowledge and promote best practice internationally from the South West, and provide a two way link with RTPI International students studying planning in the South West.
