International City Planners Network

A new website: seeks to help planners develop and implement creative solutions by facilitating contacts with planners throughout the world. The website creates a forum where all types of planners can identify and contact planners in other cities to learn more about planning issues in these cities. Registration is free.

The website is a project of the International City Planners Network which designed it with the belief that we can learn more through personal contacts than by simply reading reports and books. The website is intended to facilitate direct communications between planners and perhaps meetings when planners travel. Most planners would love to share a coffee or lunch with a planner in another city to compare notes on planning – the website is designed to facilitate these contacts.

The website's "Find a Planner" page is designed to help planners identify planners with similar interests from throughout the world. The "City Pages" present information about planning organizations and planning oriented tours in participating cities (currently: San Francisco, Zurich, Paris, and Vienna). The "Conferences Page" presents information and links to interesting planning conferences and allows planners registered with our website to identify and contact other planners attending the conferences.

The International City Planners Network is a non-profit project based in San Francisco, California. Initially sponsored by the San Francisco Planning and Research Association (SPUR) and San Francisco Zurich Initiative, the new effort seeks volunteers and additional sponsorships.

We hope planners will register on the site and that people interested in volunteering to provide text for addtional cities, help recruit sponsors and help publicize the site will contact us.
