Sustainability Meets Placemaking - And You Are Invited
The quality of place matters when it comes to a sustainable, resilient future. An inspiring, lovable environment has the power to shift our behavior and support sustainable lifestyles.
With our annual summit, CNU Cascadia is launching a regional dialogue on the relationship between Sustainability and Placemaking. We invite your voice to the table as, together, we develop the multi-faceted story of what Placemaking means in the Pacific Northwest. Join us for an opportunity to play an active role in the forum and learn from practitioners how to implement quality urbanism.
