Continuing education credits make CNU 17 a must-go
AICP CM credits for CNU now approved; AIA credit approval
Just when you think it couldn’t get any better,
it does. More sessions at this year’s Congress for the New
Urbanism are receiving AIA and AICP accreditation than ever
before, providing attendees with additional opportunities
to pursue two of the most coveted certifications for architects
and planners. As of this morning, 102 sessions are now approved
for AICP CM credits.
View the current
list of approved sessions. Additional AIA credits are
being approved daily. Session descriptions
will soon be updated to reflect the latest approvals. “Fireworks”
will be flying at this year’s Congress, and according
to architect, planner and CNU board member Doug Farr,
you won’t want to miss out. “CNU is unique among conferences.
What you get by coming to CNU is the big picture of how the
little pieces come together to make great places—and it’s
the longer-term thinking and it’s the bigger, more strategic
thinking.” Don’t miss the early bird advantage!
Taking place June 10-14 in Denver, Colorado, the 17th
Congress for the New Urbanism is built to help you benefit
from all the new urbanist advantages —learn how to make communities
more walkable, more energy efficient, more enduring, and more
livable just as demographic and cultural changes swing demand
in our direction.
Reap Urbanism's big dividends
UrBan strategies and vibrant walkable cities have a major
economic payoff, says CNU Plenary speaker Carol Coletta in
this new CNU 17 video
Many of the biggest issues of the day — climate change ,
obesity, economic recovery and broadened opportunity — run
"right through successful cities," says Carol Coletta,
President and CEO of CEOs for Cities and a CNU 17 plenary
speaker. And it's a good thing they do, since vibrant walkable
cities offer such potent solutions to these challenges.
In this CNU 17 video, Coletta shares highlights from cutting-edge
research commissioned by CEOs for Cities. It shows that real
estate prices have been more stable near strong vibrant urban
cores. And that minor 1-mile-per-day reductions in per capita
driving in the top -50 metropolitan areas will yield a $20
billion plus payoff — a continuing stimulus that's invested
locally year after year. And preliminary results suggest a
higher Walkscore translates into higher property values. "If
that's the case... it will be a great case for the principles
that are at the core of CNU, says Coletta.
