Author’s Forum on Urbanism is a monthly series featuring authors in an hour-long, interactive discussion of recent publications on urbanism. The series, part of CNU’s On the Park Bench webinar program, takes a deep dive into each author’s insights through the lens of New Urbanism. The focus will be on ideas that are embodied in the book, which advance the understanding of precedents and design strategies to repair and make sustainable urbanism. Attendees will have an opportunity to engage with the authors during the session.
Strong Towns founder Charles Marohn discusses his new book, Confessions of a Recovering Engineer: Transportation for a Strong Town. Marohn pulls back the curtain on the North American transportation system and explains why the conventional approach to traffic engineering is making people less safe, bankrupting towns and cities, and destroying the fabric of communities. The interviewer is planner and CNU board member Jocelyn Gibson.
This webinar is available for 1 CNU-A continuing education credit if viewed live or recorded.
