While typically focusing on the dwelling unit here at Jetson Green this week we’ll widen our lens to the urban realm and context of our communities at the 20th Congress for the New Urbanism in West Palm Beach.

CNU 20 is the premier conference for urbanism and planning and will feature sessions on key sustainability issues such as sprawl repair, rainwater management, green infrastructure, urban agriculture, and effective messaging of sustainability.

There will be plenty of opportunities to follow along with the conference online and through social media.  CNU is dedicated to helping spread the lessons and ideas and will be hosting a live blog and posting full sessions to You Tube after the conference.

A few of the plenaries will also be streamed live which you can find out more the CNU website.  We’ll be tweeting using the hashtag #CNU20 all week and bringing you some feature content later in the week!
