Open Innovation Is Open for CNU 25.Seattle

Alex McKeag, Wednesday, January 18, 2017

At CNU, we know that creativity doesn't always hold to a deadline. That's why we've opened our sixth annual Call for Open Innovation Ideas for CNU 25.Seattle. It's like a second chance for the best ideas to be showcased at our annual Congress.

Open Innovation sessions take the Congress to the​ ​next level—they're lively, fast-paced presentations or alternative-format events to keep our members on the cutting edge of advancing urbanism. In years past, ideas that began at Open Innovation have evolved into CNU initiatives, successful businesses, bestselling books, and full-fledged movements.

Proposals must be relevant to New Urbanism. We highly encourage new voices and diverse perspectives. Each speaker will be given anywhere from six to ten minutes to present their idea. If your idea does not fit into a lecture hall, suggest an alternative setting! Get creative!

Proposals will be accepted until 5:00 PM, February 17, with a preferred treatment for those submitted on or before January 30. Due to high demand, not every proposal can be given a time slot, so the earlier the better!
