There are many different state and local policies targeting climate action, but are they overlooking the critical connections between housing and climate change? The truth is that many current housing policies work to undermine our ability to reduce transportation emissions — the biggest source of climate pollution in California.
Come learn about these connections, and how you can help support housing policy that moves us toward climate solutions and justice.
Bruce Nilles of the Rocky Mountain Institute will discuss the importance of building electrification and linkages with housing policy. See his op-ed in the New York Times.
Nina Rizzo manages GreenTRIP certification at TransForm and will discuss how multi-family housing can reduce traffic, parking, and GHG emissions while improving affordability and transportation options.
Moderator: David Garcia, policy director at the Terner Center at UC Berkeley.
This event is a part of Connecting Communities, a free event series taking place around the Bay Area in September and October 2019, produced by TransForm in collaboration with more than a dozen co-hosting organizations. Join us to find out more about the connections between housing, transportation, climate, and equity, and what you can do to make your community more just, sustainable, and livable.
