Congress for the New Urbanism

As conventional development models falter in the face of economic and environmental challenges, CNU's annual Congress has emerged as a valuable source of superior alternatives. Building enduring walkable neighborhoods, cities and towns is a complex challenge in itself and New Urbanism has been tackling it for decades. And CNU has been innovating too, with cutting-edge efforts such as this year's launch with the USGBC and NRDC of the new LEED for Neighborhood Development pilot ratings system.

CNU's 2008 Congress in Austin from April 2-6 will put this experience front and center, demonstrating New Urbanism's edge in delivering sustainability and value in today's difficult development climate. Reserve your place by March 5 to take advantage of great early-registration discounts.

In New Urbanism, finance and development, architecture and transportation all come together to improve the built environment and respect the natural environment. And Austin - with its economic boom but flagging momentum in the exurbs - is a stimulating place to re-imagine what American regions and the cities and towns at their hearts can and must become.

See leading thinkers and practitioners such as Pulitzer-Prize winning biographer Robert Caro, innovative former HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros, and regional planning trailblazer Peter Calthorpe plus Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, Ellen Dunham-Jones, Doug Farr, Christopher Leinberger, Arthur C. Nelson, Marianne Cusato, Andrés Duany, Robert Fishman and many more.
