  • RSVP for On the Park Bench: A Public Square Conversation

    In this unprecedented era, CNU is launching a new webinar series to provide a platform for members and allies to discuss, engage, debate how we as a movement can respond to new challenges. On the Park Bench: A Public Square Conversation, builds off the success of Public Square: A CNU Journal, which discusses best practices while illuminating cutting edge issues in urbanism worldwide. To compliment this online resource, On The Park Bench presents interactive conversations with thought leaders in New Urbanism and allied industries, providing an opportunity for the audience to engage in real time. Powered by the Congress for the New Urbanism, Public Square and On the Park Bench are built to add depth and rigor to the practice of urbanism and improve our capacity for creating inclusive, resilient places—places that people love.

    Our inaugural webinar, New Urbanism for a New World: Perspectives from Laurie Volk, Seth Harry, Mike Lydon, and Ashleigh Walton, will address the enduring power of urbanism to create community. New Urbanism has always been about creating people centered places that are socially just, economically robust, and environmentally resilient. With social distancing at the forefront of attempts to contain the spread of COVID-19, many are wondering if dense, urban living will come under scrutiny and result in a pattern of city-dwellers fleeing for suburban havens once again. Yet others have noted the importance of walkable urbanism in easing the transition to social distancing and traditional neighborhoods supporting a feeling of connectedness in the face of unprecedented solitude.

    Please RSVP below to join us Tuesday, March 31st at 12pm EST to engage with three generations of New Urbanist leaders to discuss the continued and essential role of New Urbanism in a new world paradigm.
