Housing and Transportation: What’s the Climate Connection?

Join us for a panel discussion Wednesday, February 22, from 6pm to 8pm at the Ann Arbor District Library’s downtown location, 343 S 5th Ave.

Housing and transportation together account for 42% of our emissions. To achieve carbon neutrality by 2030 we need to dramatically reduce vehicle miles traveled and make our buildings more efficient. What impact do transportation and housing choices have on carbon emissions, affordability and livability? Ann Arbor Citizens’ Climate Lobby has assembled a panel to discuss considerations for designing low carbon, highly livable cities.

Panelists include:

  • Jan Culbertson, Senior Principal Emeritus, A3C and Leadership Council Chair, Ann Arbor 2030 District
  • Reid Ewing, Distinguished Professor of City and Metropolitan Planning, University of Utah
  • Christopher Laurent, President, Cinnaire Solutions
  • Jonathan Levine, Professor of Urban and Regional Planning, University of Michigan’s Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning

This discussion will also be available to attend virtually on Zoom. To receive the Zoom link, register here: https://a2gov.zoom.us/…/WN_fmqnRmqXT6SgpyKmzRSQVg…
