The Association aims at promoting urbanism and urban studies, fostering urban researches, mobilizing urban stakeholders to improve urban environment and contributing to the training of urban planners. Its mission is to make urban planners work public insofar as it is often confused with architecture. The objective is to enhance links between Tunisian urban planners and urban planners from other countries. Faced to the lack of urban training programs, the Association has participated in creating a training institute dedicated to environmental, urban and building technologies. The ATU supports the certification process to be specific to the profession. The ATU organizes workshops and participated in drawing up the Development Strategy of the city of Tunis. It also organized an international symposium on Tunisian cities which aimed at warning decision makers on urban planners’ involvement in urban planning. Relevance to the CMI urban programs: UD1 – Regional and urban planning Date of entry: June 2010
