Completing our series highlighting the three critical session tracks at CNU29.Design for Change, this episode of On the Park Bench will ask three New Urbanist thought leaders why we must Design for (Social) Change.

CNU 29 sessions in the Social Track will examine how design has the power to change the way our communities function, from investigating who has access to resources to ensuring all voices have the opportunity to shape the future. Through the discussions that this track will prompt at the Congress, speakers and attendees alike will be asking critical questions around what society should look like and how design can contribute to communicating and achieving this vision. A variety of content will be available through sessions in the Social Track, including those led by the three panelists, as well as the moderator on this webinar, who will each talk about the social change they are seeking.

Karen Parolek, Principal at Opticos Design, will talk about the importance of anti-racism and spatial justice within the New Urbanist movement; Marques King, Managing Principal of Fabric[k] Design, will talk about the urgency of understanding housing as a social issue; and Jennifer Hurley, President and CEO at Hurley-Franks & Associates, will talk about the changed landscape of community engagement in a post-Covid society. Moderated by Todd Zimmerman, Director Emeritus of Zimmerman/Volk Associates and also presenting at the Congress, this webinar will be a call to action for New Urbanists in designing for the social change that our Charter describes 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.
