As CNU prepares for what we know will be an exciting, compelling, and thought-provoking Congress, our On the Park Bench series will give a taste of what to expect and why you should join us at CNU29.Design for Change.

At this year’s Congress, content will fall into one of three critical tracks: Social, Policy, and Physical. This episode of On the Park Bench will ask three New Urbanist thought leaders why we need to Design for (Policy) Change.

In this era of change, policy is often the software that drives the planning, designing, and development of our built and natural environments. Congress sessions in this track will investigate the present and future of policies, policy implications, and opportunities to achieve future-focused results that align with the Charter. A variety of sessions will fill the Policy Track at CNU 29, including sessions led by the three panelists on this webinar who will each talk about the change they are seeking.

Harriet Tregoning, Director of the New Urban Mobility Alliance, will talk about the change needed in centering Covid recovery around equity and justice; Heyden Black Walker, Urban Planner with Black + Vernooy, will talk about the change needed in reversing the culture of freeway expansion; and Marc Wouters, Director of Marc Wouters Studios, will talk about the change needed to elevate community land trusts as a crucial tool in addressing the challenges cities are facing. Moderated by CNU Director of Strategic Development, Mallory Baches, this webinar will frame the urgency of designing for policy change and offer some insight into why you should register for CNU29.Design for Change.

This webinar is available for 1 CNU-A continuing education credit if viewed live or recorded.
