Young Planning Professionals’ Workshop

organized as part of the 55th ISOCARP WORLD PLANNING CONGRESS JAKARTA-BOGOR, INDONESIA, 4-8 September 2019

Planning Beyond Limits - Building Livable Communities


The Young Planning Professionals’ Programme is a crucial component of ISOCARP’s dedication to promote and enhance the planning profession and commitment to facilitate knowledge for better cities with the young generations, the future leaders of our profession. It was initiated in 1991 at the 26th ISOCARP Congress in Guadalajara, Mexico. Since then, it has become tradition to organise the workshops in the week preceding the annual world congress in order to provide unique opportunities to Young Planning Professionals (YPPs) to share their experiences in an attempt to resolve complex and multi-dimensional planning problems. The Programme has facilitated a unique creative spirit within the Society, and it has become a source of new ideas, innovation and rejuvenation not only for the Society but also for our partners; and has made a huge impact on participants’ professional lives, in the name of the universal vision of promoting and enhancing the planning profession. It has also contributed towards making life-long friendships beyond borders, languages, cultures and professional backgrounds. According to this tradition, the YPP workshop will be offered again this year during the 55th ISOCARP World Planning Congress, which will take place in Jakarta- Bogor, Indonesia. The workshop itself will take place between 4 and 8 September, and the final presentation will be scheduled during one of the congress plenary sessions. The workshop will be organised in partnership with the Indonesian Association of Urban and Regional Planners (IAP).



The YPP workshop will be offered again this year during the 55th ISOCARP World Planning Congress, Jakarta-Bogor, Indonesia. This workshop will focus on handling the condition of liveable, accessible and mobile communities in two specific areas in Jakarta and Bogor.

 The first case study area will be the transit-oriented development (TOD) area at the Dukuh Atas. This very central location in Jakarta is the first transit area built by the DKI Jakarta Government. Located at the intersection of three major transport nodes, surrounded by office and retail buildings, it is expected to be further equipped with various mass transportation and become an interconnected place between diverse transportation nodes and a pedestrian friendly urban environment. The second case study area will be the Chinatown district in Bogor, known as Jalan Surya Kencana. Along this streetscape, strongly developed as commercial street, different ethnics, languages and cultures meet. The challenge will be how to rethink an integrated urban and landscape design able to balance revitalization and conservation, while fostering economic development, sustainability and a renewed livability for the local communities. These case study areas will offer the potential to rethink livability in Jakarta and Bogor, with a special attention to mobility, in accordance to connectivity, diversity, quality, accessibility, mobility, sustainability and resilience.
