Erb Conference to Offer Perspectives on Sustainable Transportation

11/24/2004 --

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – The Erb Environmental Management Institute at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business will co-host "From Mobility to Accessibility: A Symposium on Sustainable Transportation," 8:45 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Dec. 3 at the Art and Architecture Building Auditorium on North Campus.

The workshop, free to the public, is aimed at setting an interdisciplinary research and policy agenda, including aspects of land use, transportation, public health and environment. It will explore the different aspects of accessibility–beyond mobility–in U.S. metropolitan areas and will examine how policy, technology and urban design affect our access to places, thereby creating livable cities.

Speakers include Jonathan Levine, associate professor of urban planning at the Taubman College of Architecture and Planning (TCAUP) at the University of Michigan; Anthony Downs, senior fellow at the Brookings Institute; Hank Dittmar, president and CEO of Reconnecting America; John Pucher, professor of urban planning and policy at Rutgers University; Sue Zielinski, director of Moving the Economy in Toronto; and Susan Handy, associate professor of environmental science and policy at the University of California at Davis.

Other sponsors include the TCAUP, Center for the Study of Complex Systems and Center for Advancing Research and Solutions for Society. For more information, go to http://www.tcaup.umich.edu/newsevents/2004/mobilityaccessibilityf04.html.
