Headquartered in Washington, DC, the mission of the CNU is to champion walkable urbanism by providing resources, education, and technical assistance to create socially just, economically robust, environmentally resilient, and people centered places. The CNU leverages the principles of the New Urbanism to advance three key goals: to diversify neighborhoods, to design for climate change, and to legalize walkable places.
