The Mobility Revolution: How Are Our Options Changing?
Experts on the forefront of evaluating, developing and integrating mobility options in the transportation sector will explore how these options have changed the way we move people and goods recently (within the last 5 years) and how they are likely to change in the future (5-10 year time horizon). Specific focus will be on new transportation technologies, the pace of their adoption, and their economic and environmental footprint.
The Big Picture: Why Does the Mobility Revolution Matter to Environmental Health
This session will examine the mobility changes discussed in session #1 in the context of environmental health – for every change in mode choice, what are the environmental health changes (both positive and negative)? Lessons learned from changes occurring in recent years will also be explored to help evaluate/consider impacts of further mobility changes on environmental health including air quality, waste, and other areas of concern.
