Harnessing the 3 Revolutions in Transportation for Climate Goals

 September 11 • 2–7:30 p.m.


How can subnational governments leverage the coming “3 Revolutions” in shared, electric, and automated transportation to meet climate goals? Transportation technologies are evolving rapidly, and the course of their evolution will determine whether GHG emissions dramatically increase or drop as a result. Which outcome we see in the future depends on our policy decisions in the present. The driving question of this session will be: What policies will steer the 3 Revolutions toward climate goals? This event will empower states, regions, and cities with policy tools needed to harness these revolutions to reduce climate emissions.
