CNU -NE works to unite the New Urbanist movement through networking, collaboration, and education.


The Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) is an international non-profit dedicated to building and restoring places people love. CNU brings together architects, planners, developers, engineers, and citizen advocates dedicated to making their communities walkable, equitable, sustainable, and dynamic. Members of the Congress for the New Urbanism help create vibrant and walkable cities, towns, and neighborhoods where people have diverse choices for how they live, work, shop, and get around. People want to live in well-designed places that are unique and authentic. CNU's mission is to help people build those places.

CNU’s New England Chapter creates opportunities for local urbanists to connect and build strong cities and towns throughout New England. From our Urbanism Summit , to our Urbanism Awards, to our (Un)Built Exhibition series,  our chapter organizes meaningful events that aim to align professional standards, activate public support, reform policy, and connect community and business leaders with design professionals in the areas of health, development, and transportation.
