PLACE-BASED SOLUTIONS FOR DECARBONIZING TRANSPORT
Place-based decarbonization recognizes that different places have different capacities, paths, and costs for decarbonization; it also involves communities and businesses in designing the cities, towns, and villages they want. This seminar series hosted by Positive Zero bring together speakers from all over the world to share their success stories and work on place-based solutions for decarbonizing transportation.
First seminar: Roadmap for emission-free road transport and healthy urban living
Date: September 8th, 2022
Time: 10.00 -11.30 am (EDT)
About 70% of the world’s population will be living in urban areas by the year 2050. Insufficient urban and transportation planning contributes to unhealthy living conditions such as air pollution, noise, heat islands, a lack of green spaces, and premature deaths. The purpose of this seminar is to discuss how better urban and transportation planning can improve public health, what can be learned from Norway, a world leader in electrification, and how transportation options will evolve over time and be influenced by societal trends.
