Planning for Climate Change, More than an Environmental Challenge

From Transform:

Healthy Communities Forum

Can you envision our region as an even more livable, resilient place? Where people have the choice of affordably living near their work? Where shops, parks, schools, and locally-grown food are accessible by foot, bicycle, or public transit?  Join the Healthy Communities Bay Area Coalition for their April forum and connect with others who want to make these goals into reality.

April’s speaker will be Dr. Andrew Guzman, Professor of Law and Associate Dean for International and Executive Education, University of California, Berkeley and author of “Overheated: The Human Cost of Climate Change.” Guzman will take his book one step further and present on our region’s role in solving the climate crisis.  Afteward, everyone will be invited to discuss strategies for how to make our region economically, environmentally, and socially healthier and more resilient.

This forum is free and open to the public, but RSVPs are appreciated.  Refreshments will be provided.  The forum is being organized by the Sierra Club Loma Prieta Chapter.

TransForm is one of 30 allies in the Healthy Communities Bay Area Coalition, a diverse group of decision makers, environmentalists, affordable housing advocates, developers, businesses, labor, and community leaders that are working together to send a clear message that through better land use and transportation planning, we can make the Bay Area a more healthy, resilient place – economically, environmentally, and socially – and improve overall quality of life.  You can learn more atwww.healthycommunitiesbayarea.org.
