My good friends John Paget , Drew Ward, and Chris Elisara just entered this great video into a contest run by the Congress for New Urbanism (CNU). They entered the contest because they believe in the design principles of new urbanism and wanted to do a film on the subject. If they win they get to attend the 17th CNU conference for free.
The task was simple, “create an original three-minute video that illustrates how the principles of New Urbanism — density, design, and walkability — can effectively respond to current environmental challenges that we face.” So if you have time, and are so inclined, check it out at and give it a rating. Also, if you like the video could you spread the word to your cyber friends and/or post a link on your blog and website? The more views they get the better off they’ll be.
