Young Planners in the North West

The NWYPs: Who are we and what do we do?

The Young Planners are RTPI members in education or in the first ten years of their planning careers.  Membership of the Young Planners is open to all student, licentiate and chartered members of the RTPI.

The North West Young Planners cover one of the largest regions in the UK and organise a busy calendar of events.  Events are focused in Manchester and Liverpool, but we also have several events a year across the rest of the region.  Events include CPD talks and tours, and networking and social events.

If you would like to receive newsletters and  updates about NWYP events complete this form to sign up to our mailing list.

Through a range of inter-professional initiatives we also work to promote planning as a profession both within schools and universities and across the built environment network. 

You can follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook for more details of upcoming events, opportunities and snippets of planning trivia!

 

2018 Events 

Below are details of our upcoming events over the next few months.  Many more will be confirmed through the year.  At the moment we are putting together walking tours, talks, CPD sessions, and social and networking events.  Details of all of these will always be published through the mailing list.  If you have any suggestions for events you think would be of interest, please get in touch.
