In recent years, the modern world has been facing growing civilization challenges related to the effects of climate change, progressive degradation of the natural environment resources and values, internal and external migrations resulting from economic cr ises and political tensions, as well as shortening product life cycles, automation and autonomization of management processes in business and the public sector. Development processes are going to be difficult to predict, such as the outbreak of the COVID 19 pandemic in 2019 appearance, for example. Uncertain forecasts for the future force us to expect further development disruptions. Importantly, these phenomena h ave their consequences in the sphere of spatial development patterns and ways of using it by various stakeholders. These consequences are revealed on a local, regional, national and transnational scale, implying the need to develop methods of cooperation b etween various planning entities and planning systems. Space is becoming on the one hand an increasingly valuable resource, and its values and territorial dimension become an important factor of the development and growth processes on the other hand, it requires more and more flexible adaptation of its d evelopment patterns to changing trends and forecasted challenges and problems. This raises the question of the effectiveness and legitimacy of using the existing, more traditional planning approaches based on the methodology of long term strategic planning aimed at building stable foundations for the development of society and in c ontrast to this searching for new approaches corresponding to the indicated planning challenges in conditions of high uncertainty of events, risks and anthropogenic and natural hazards. A particular challenge seems to be the need to use planning tools in international cooperation to reduce the negative externalities related to the side effects of globalization processes. The Congress aimed to create a space to discuss the importance and role of Integrated Planning in a World of Turbulence .
