World Town Planning Day at Georgia Tech

April 8 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Georgia Tech Student Planning Association, Black Lady Planners, and the School of City and Regional Planning are excited to host Darryl Haddock of the West Atlanta Watershed Alliance (WAWA) for World Planning Day. The discussion will educate attendees on some equity and nature-based solutions for change and the WAWA Way. 

World Town Planning Day is an opportunity to unite planners and celebrate planning around the globe. In November 2020, WTPD focused on the social pillars of equity, diversity, and inclusion to create a space in which all community stakeholders can join together to find solutions to thrive after public health crises. This spring, we aim to honor and continue to focus on this theme with our belated tribute to WTPD.  

WAWA is a volunteer-run organization that partners with members of the West Atlanta community to protect greenspaces and water quality, educate residents about environmental issues, address racial disparities in environmental justice, and steward natural lands and parks in Southwest Atlanta. WAWA fosters community organization centered on the people living near environmental stressors and highlighting the watershed’s ecological benefits. WAWA lifts communities up so they can speak in their own voices at decision-making tables.
