Anne Stephenson from Clean Air Cool Planet was kind enough to invite us to present at an upcoming webinar on March 30th that they are producing, all about Single-Occupancy Vehicles.
According to recent research 77% of us still commute alone.
Here is one solution:
The webinar will address environmental impacts and present additional strategies for reducing SOV’s. From the Clean Air Cool Planet site:
“Reducing transportation related emissions remains one of the thorniest problems in carbon management, and one shared by institutions ranging from college to hospital to business. As we work to move to a culture of greater sustainability, how can we address the environmental impact of commuting via single-occupancy vehicles (SOVs)? Hear about some of the newest strategies for reducing SOVs, including lower-cost and more engaging alternatives to those ever present, ever inconclusive commuter surveys. Solutions discussed will be applicable to commuter populations of varied shapes and sizes.
Our featured speakers include Susan Sloan-Rossiter, Mike Scott, and Brent Drewry. Ms. Sloan-Rossiter, LEED AP, is a principal of Vanasse Hangen Brustlin, Inc. (VHB). VHB provides integrated transportation, land development, and environmental services to public, private and institutional clients. Ms. Sloan-Rossiter has extensive experience in the planning, permitting and technical transportation analysis of large complex multi-modal mixed-use development projects.
Mr. Scott and Mr. Drewry represent two of the most interesting web-based applications for commuters to date – Moblu and PickUpPal. Mr. Scott is the co-founder of Moblu Inc., a Vancouver-based web company that helps groups track the environmental of their commuting and other transportation choices.
Mr. Drewry is the Business Development Director at PickUpPal, a ride-sharing service that interfaces with the most popular social networking tools. Mr. Drewry and Mr. Scott will discuss how employers and campuses have employed these web applications for reduced SOV use and better commuter data.”
