About the Annual Lectures

A tradition of challenging planning misconceptions

The Henry Halloran Trust's Annual Lecture, now in its fourth consecutive year, presents a much anticipated occasion for the Urban and Regional Planning community of Sydney to gather and enjoy a carefully selected presentation by an esteemed member of the international Planning community. It is also an ideal opportunity for our extended network of practitioners, policy makers, scholars and students to reunite to celebrate their successes and share their feedback with the presenters. Feedback which progresses our Trust's agenda for discourse and keeps us pursuing important, relevant and timely issues for the Planning community we serve.
