The 19th annual meeting of the Congress for the New Urbanism will be June 1-4 in Madison, Wisconsin.
Drawing on the close relationship Madison has with its agricultural neighbors, CNU 19 will build on the theme of “Growing Local.” The conference will explore linkages that urban communities have with local food production, the food economy and the infrastructure that has developed around this symbiosis.
It’s not just about growing food though. The conference will extend the “Growing Local” theme to include the nurturing of non-agricultural local economies and local connections — from Madison’s burgeoning bicycle industry and bike culture to its commitment to community involvement and participation, and pursuit of growth that reinforces a distinct sense of place. The region’s balance of vibrant urban life, rural charm, and natural beauty make Madison an ideal backdrop for CNU 19. Confirmed speakers include author and urban historian William Cronon, Trek CEO John Burke, Madison Mayor Dave Cieslewicz, Congressman Blumenauer, the six original visionaries of CNU, Seaside, FL founder Robert Davis, and many, many more.
