  • CityBuilding Express!

    The CityBuilding Express (CBX) is taking learning on the road beginning June 6 in Chicago. From June 6 - 9 join us for an intensive tour ​of over 25 innovative neighborhoods/developments that highlight CityBuilding best practices and how to implement them— with the assistance from local experts and leading practitioners who will be on the tour with you. 

    After visiting each city, the participants will discuss and identify the lessons to learn from each place as we head to the next city.  This is the perfect hands-on learning environment for community leaders who want to enhance their knowledge of how to improve their city in a compressed amount of time.  

    The tour wraps up the evening of June 9th in Saint Paul so that participants can conveniently participate in 
    CNU 28 which runs from June 10th through June 13th.

  • Sustainability and Emerging Transportation Technology (SETT) 2020

    About: Utopia or dystopia? Transportation technologies (e.g., connected and automated vehicles) and new approaches to mobility (e.g., shared services) are advancing so rapidly that it can be difficult for policy makers to frame incentives, regulations, and market signals to promote all three pillars of sustainability: equity, the environment, and the economy. The Sustainability and Emerging Transportation Technology (SETT) Conference on August 31 – September 2, 2020, at the NASEM Beckman Center in Irvine, California, will address questions around how academics, policy-makers, the private sector, NGOs, and others can work together to shape new mobility solutions to benefit all users of our transportation systems.

    When: August 31 – September 2, 2020

    Where: NASEM Beckman Center in Irvine, California
