A APROURB, Associação Profissional dos Urbanistas Portugueses, fundada em de Abril de 2002 em Lisboa, congrega Urbanistas com formação específica de nível universitário conforme as recomendações do Conselho Europeu de Urbanistas.
A APROURB, Associação Profissional dos Urbanistas Portugueses, congrega Urbanistas, com formação específica de nível universitário conforme as recomendações do Conselho Europeu de Urbanistas.
Está hoje devidamente identificado o âmbito, a natureza, a deontologia e o quadro de formação universitária que sustentam a profissão de urbanista e caracterizam o profissional Urbanista.
Trata-se em particular de documentos emanados pelo Conselho Europeu dos Urbanistas, e pelo Ministério do Trabalho e Solidariedade e reflecte-se também na recente legislação sobre questões do domínio do Urbanismo, como seja a própria Lei de bases do ordenamento do território e do urbanismo.
Por outro lado várias instituições de Ensino Superior criaram Cursos de Licenciatura em Urbanismo, as quais foram objecto de reconhecimento Governamental através do Ministério da Educação e cujas portarias foram publicadas no Diário da República existindo hoje em Portugal várias centenas de Urbanistas (em situação de flagrante discriminação profissional) detentores de formação específica, ou seja de Licenciatura em Urbanismo e Planeamento Urbano.
A defesa do urbanista cabe, acima de tudo e em primeiro lugar, ao urbanista. É o profissional que deverá interessar-se pela definição específica junto da sociedade portuguesa, daquilo que é a sua prática enquanto urbanista e, deverá partir dele também, a luta pela defesa do urbanismo qualificado em Portugal.
A Associação Profissional dos Urbanistas Portugueses (APROURB) visa juntar os urbanistas portugueses em torno de uma Associação que os defenda e represente naquilo que são as suas lutas e anseios.
A APROURB tem como objectivo principal a defesa do urbanista e do urbanismo em Portugal, a boa prática profissional e o acompanhamento do desenvolvimento das questões urbanísticas no território nacional bem como as evoluções internacionais no âmbito do urbanismo.
A APROURB em conjunto com a AUP e a APPLA está envolvida na constituição da ORDEM DOS URBANISTAS PORTUGUESES, integrando a sua Comissão Instaladora.

The American Planning Association is an independent, not-for-profit educational organization that provides leadership in the development of vital communities by advocating excellence in community planning, promoting education and citizen empowerment, and providing the tools and support necessary to meet the challenges of growth and change.
Our Values
We are the leaders of a planning movement. We champion good planning through direct public advocacy at the national level, through technical support for our chapters' efforts at the state level and division efforts at the national level, members' efforts at the local level, and through our amicus curiae committee's legal briefs in selected court cases. We advocate good planning through vigorous public information and education programs that include dissemination of materials to the media and through our web site.
We are recognized by our partners abroad as an international leader of the planning movement. We develop print and digital products to describe the outcomes of good planning, to educate the nation about planning, and to reinforce the collective and individual efforts of our members.
We assure excellence in the field through our continued support of the planning school accreditation process conducted by the Planning Accreditation Board and by continued emphasis on the importance of AICP certification for practicing professionals. These activities raise the quality, and thus the stature, of the profession. To help our professional members maintain their skills and respond to new challenges and opportunities, we develop a range of accessible, affordable continuing education programs. We support certified planners in their pursuit of certification maintenance. We promote a diverse workforce by bringing employers together with applicants through our job services.
In 2009, APA will celebrate the centennial of the planning movement in this country. As America's communities face challenges of the future, including globalization and global warming, increased geographic and demographic diversity, we will also reflect on the accomplishments and history of the planning movement in this country over the last 100 years.

Le Conseil Français des Urbanistes (CFDU) est la confédération d’associations qui représente, depuis 1996, l'ensemble des professionnels de l’urbanisme.

Le CFDUrassemble des personnes morales, à savoir desassociations nationales et régionales d'urbanistes, lesquelles gardent une grande latitude dans leur organisation.
Les associations nationales d’urbanistes, fondatrices duCFDU en 1996, représentent un mode particulier d’exercice : dans les collectivités territoriales, les services de l’État, les agences d’urbanisme, les CAUE, les PACT-ARIM et chez les géomètres experts urbanistes.
Elles suivent avec attention les conditions d’exercice professionnel,aux niveaux national ou européen. Les associations régionales d’urbanistes ont pour objectif essentiel d’organiser les débats sur les enjeux et pratiques de l’urbanisme au niveau local et, si besoin, de les répercuter au niveau national. Elles permettent surtout l’échange des connaissances et des pratiques entre différents modes d’exercice.

 Trinidad and Tobago Society of Planners  www.ttplanners.org

The Trinidad and Tobago Society of Planners (TTSP) was enacted by the Parliament of Trinidad and Tobago in the year 2004. Today the TTSP has a membership of some thirty (30) odd members who are either full time professionals or students on the way to becoming professionals in the discipline of Urban Planning
The TTSP has accomplished much in its short existence, including items such as :
The TTSP has pushed the initiative for the registration and licensing of planners. The draft Bill has been discussed with the CARIFORUM/CARICOM representative who visited Trinidad and Tobago sometime ago. The Bill has been transmitted to Government via a Ministerial Committee on Construction and Oversight. This Committee will in turn transmit this and similar bills from other professions to the respective ministers. It is expected that this matter will subsequently be placed on the government’s legislative agenda
The TTSP, in conjunction with the Division of Town and Country Planning, convened a seminar in celebration of World Town Planning Day in which two major presentations were made. TTSP also participated in the CAP Americas meeting in Barbados and circulated a report of that meeting to its membership
TTSP presently has approximately thirty active members, plus student members. An internship initiative allows senior planners to engage a student for the long holidays, as well as to have students “shadow” a planner in the execution of specific tasks.
