Farr Associates, in partnership with PlaceMatters and the APA Technology Division, has put together a convenient and affordable series of online seminars to teach planners about the principles and practices of Sustainable Urbanism. Implementing sustainable communities will require the participation of the next several generations of development and planning professionals. New tools and techniques can greatly assist in the adoption of Sustainable Urbanism as a dominant pattern of human settlement over the course of the next few decades.

In the first session on June 19th, learn about issues such as:
• Integrating transportation and land use in an auto-dependent era
• Creating sustainable neighborhoods through density and walkable neighborhoods
• The processes and tools for implementing Sustainable Urbanism
• Linking humans to nature including walk-to open spaces and local food production
