2019 Urbanism Awards Assessment Visits

This year’s 15 assessment visits to our Urbanism Awards finalists will take place between July and September. Academicians and Young Urbanists are welcome to take part in this rewarding, shared learning experience.

Join us on one or more of the visits to take a step back, think critically about how we overcome the challenges and opportunities facing all of our places, and take some important lessons away with you.
