Congress for the New Urbanism Seeks Session Ideas for 2009 Congress

Congress for the New Urbanism

The Congress for the New Urbanism will be holding its annual congress in Denver on June 10-13 and would like to hear your ideas for the program. The congress is a meeting of CNU's interdisciplinary coalition of architects, engineers, planners, developers, elected officials, community activists, and others dedicated to advancing efforts to build, preserve, and redevelop sustainable pedestrian-friendly communities as alternatives to sprawl.

The Theme of CNU 17 will be "Experiencing the New Urbanism: The Convenient Remedy". Denver has seen numerous new urbanist developments shaped by the CNU charter that stand above conventional patterns of development, and this congress will provide an opportunity to experience them.

Any ideas that will challenge attendee's to evaluate how the CNU Charter has shaped better neighborhoods, communities and provided convenient remedies to sprawl, will be helpful. We are especially interested in transportation and transit-oriented development, sustainability, urbanizing the horizontal city, designing and investing in public infrastructure and implementing New Urbanism.
CNU's initiative page is a good place to learn about current projects and initiatives, as many sessions build upon existing CNU initiatives. Click to see current initiatives
