CNU co-founder Andres Duany will join CNU board member Scott Bernstein, president and co-founder of the Center for Neighborhood Technology and John Tolva, Chief Technology Officer for the City of Chicago in a conversation on how efficient urban form, smart cities and resource efficiency can create synergies to meet our environmental challenges and create good jobs.  Journalist Laura Washington will moderate the conversation.
