To create vibrant, sustainable cities, says Seattle attorney Charles Wolfe, we must first understand what happens naturally when people congregate in cities—the innate, unprompted interactions of urban dwellers with each other and their surrounding environment. Wolfe, author of the illustrated e-book Urbanism Without Effort, argues that city dwellers invariably celebrate environments where they can coexist safely, in a mutually supportive way, and finds such celebration most interesting when it occurs spontaneously—seemingly without effort. Through illustrations and examples of real life—both historic and current—he contends it is critical to first isolate these spontaneous examples of successful urban land use before applying government policies or initiatives.

Presented as part of the Town Hall Civic series, supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True/Brown Foundation. Media support provided by Crosscut.com.

Tickets are $5 at www.townhallseattle.org or 888/377-4510 and at the door beginning at 5:30 pm. Town Hall members receive priority seating. Downstairs at Town Hall; enter on Seneca Street.
