The Transportation and Sustainability Committee is leading TRB’s sponsorship of the Global Sustainability, Local Transportation Solutions conference in the Spring of 2015. The event will be held in either Washington, D.C. or Irvine, California. The conference is designed to draw attention to the global and international aspects of transportation and sustainability, including: problems of transportation and sustainability that are common to many nations.
The conference will provide an opportunity to showcase state of the art solutions that can be applied in the United States and other countries; address sustainability and international relations that arise when transportation modes cross country borders; and highlight issues of global sustainability related to transportation that may be hard to effectively address by some nations in part because of a lack of knowledge and research capacity.
The program will include technical discussions on sustainable practices and interactive sustainability problem-solving, and feature a plenary session that expects to include senior level policy makers, corporate executives, and leading subject matter experts.
