TRB is sponsoring the Transportation for Sustainability–An International Conference on May 7-8, 2015 in Washington, D.C. 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 because of a lack of knowledge and research capacity.
Key sessions during the conference will be webcast, including all plenary sessions, breakout sessions, and two working group discussions on Developing Countries: Challenges on the Path to Sustainability (which I will be chairing) and Practitioner’s Guidance on Implementing Sustainability). The webcast option is complimentary for federal, state, and local government employees as well as students. Otherwise a webcast fee of $129 is due when registering for the conference.
