On the Park Bench
Author's Forum on Urbanism
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 one or two 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 the authors during the session. Spearheaded by Dhiru Thadani, Author’s Forum on Urbanism will be held on Tuesdays from 12-1pm Eastern on selected dates. See the event tab for further information.
Attendees should register for the webinar here.
Suggestions for authors and books to be considered for future forums should be sent to Claire at CNU at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Freeways Without Futures 2021
Submit your nomination by November 25th HERE!
For the seventh edition of its biennial Freeways Without Futures report, the Congress for the New Urbanism seeks examples of city highways in North America that are too costly to repair and for too long have isolated and polluted nearby neighborhoods and communities, many of them Black and Brown.
Freeways Without Futures highlights the efforts of local campaign organizers and activists seeking to revitalize their communities by dismantling the highways that burden them with the significant health hazards of vehicle exhaust, a loss of local businesses and services, and streets that are hostile to pedestrians.
Submit your nomination today to amplify these community-driven campaigns. Submissions can be made through November 25th, 2020.
Each submission should identify one freeway outline the local campaign underway to remove it, and discuss how it proposes to channel the benefits unlocked by taking down an expressway to serve the members of the current community.
