The article presents an edited transcript of the comments of a group of city planners and related practitioners about their professional interests in the field. In response to a question on the training of next generation of planners, one of the planners participating in the discussion explained that one can start by making sure the planning schools and the public health schools and the transportation schools are all working together and talking about safety in an integrated way. All training must be multidisciplinary and should be provided in order to create expert trainers who can contribute towards the planned growth of cities and towns.
