Technology has become a ubiquitous part of our lives but, as New Urbanists, we need to better understand the efficiencies and accessibility that civic tech can bring to communities. From public outreach and input tools to street design software to parking space pricing sensors, and all the apps in between, there are techniques and technologies to enhance our placemaking work.

What is the Civic Tech Forum?

The Civic Tech Forum is a collaborative space that connects communities facing local challenges with organizations that have the tools to solve these problems. Participants in the Civic Tech Forum will have the chance to showcase and demonstrate how their technology can help create great places. Presenters will also engage in one-on-one sessions with CNU’s vast network of placemakers to discuss how their technology can be utilized to transform more cities and towns.

Who can participate?

CNU looking to engage 10 - 15 companies and organizations that leverage technology to build more equitable, sustainable, and prosperous places. 

How can my organization participate?

The Civic Tech Forum is open to members and non-members alike. Due to limited space, CNU can only accept 10-15 organizations.  To secure your organization's spot contact Kristen Dunphey at by April 15th, 2016.  We'll see you in Detroit!
