SUMC and TransitCenter Present: Decarbonizing Transportation – Beyond the EV, a panel discussion

September 20, 2023 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm


We discuss why shifting to EVs is necessary but insufficient to confront the climate crisis and social, economic, and racial inequality.

How can decarbonization work for the rest of us? Shifting to electric vehicles (EVs) has become the focus of the global efforts to decarbonize transportation. This is necessary but not sufficient. How can we go beyond EVs and decarbonize with a just transition? How do we center buses, trains, bikes, scooters, ridehail, and the rest of public and shared mobility? During NYC Climate Week, SUMC and TransitCenter present “Decarbonizing Transportation: Beyond the EV,” a panel to discuss options for a future of sustainable and inclusive transportation with and beyond EVs.

Speakers include:
Chris Van Eyken – TransitCenter
Clayton Lane – Nelson/Nygaard
Dominick Tribone – Lyft
Midori Valdivia – New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority
Melinda Hansen – Brightside
Benjie de la Peña – SUMC

Join SUMC on Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2023, at the TransitCenter offices on 1 Whitehall Street, 17th Floor, New York, NY. Registration is required.
