The New Jersey Climate Change Alliance and the NJ Climate Change Resource Center in association with the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers invites you to a virtual statewide thought leaders webinar featuring national experts in the fields of planning, social justice, health, and carbon-neutral mobility. This webinar is the first component of a three-part visioning process designed to explore how a multi-goal planning and transportation framework can be used to achieve a healthier, more just, and cleaner transport future in the state of New Jersey.
Achieving New Jersey’s energy and emissions targets to address climate change will require a multifaceted and sustained effort. To date, most attention with regard to reducing transport-related greenhouse gas emissions has been focused on encouraging the uptake of electric vehicles through incentives and deployment of electric vehicle charging infrastructure. The transition to EVs will be critical but there are other strategies that can help reduce carbon emissions that simultaneously help to achieve other important environmental, social, and economic goals. This webinar will begin to explore how New Jersey policymakers and communities in New Jersey can pursue multiple goals simultaneously as we all work together to reduce carbon emissions from the transport sector.
