Off to the RTPI Planning Convention

Posted June 13th, 2011

There’s a great variety of speakers and a brand new Pecha Kucha session after lunch on Wednesday with a great many speakers including the Young Planner of the Year, Sarah Foster, Viv Ramsey of the ODA and Christine Platt, President of the Commonwealth Association of Planners.  Other sessions which I’m particularly looking forward to are workshop 13 ‘keeping it local – planning the future food supply’ as my friend Ian Sinclair from Australia will be speaking and of course the RSPB workshop on Tuesday morning which I’m chairing!  Other highlights for me will be the Ministerial Address from Greg Clark after this year’s RTPI President, my successor Richard Summers’ address to the Convention.  Hope to see you there!
