Open Innovation sessions take the Congress to the next level—they're lively, fast-paced presentations or alternative-format events to keep our members on the cutting edge of advancing urbanism. In years past, ideas that began at Open Innovation have evolved into CNU initiatives, successful businesses, bestselling books, and full-fledged movements.
Proposals must be relevant to New Urbanism. We highly encourage new voices and diverse perspectives. Each speaker will be given anywhere from six to ten minutes to present their idea. If your idea does not fit into a lecture hall, suggest an alternative setting! Get creative!
Proposals will be accepted until noon ET on Friday, March 8. Successful proposals will be notified on or before March 22.
