Our existing physical, social, economic, technological, and institutional INFRASTRUCTURES overwhelmingly favor private car ownership and private car use. This SYSTEM sustains itself at great cost to our households, to our communities, and to our planet. This SYSTEM drives the climate crisis, perpetuates inequality, and is hostile to community. The INFRASTRUCTURES are rooted in racism and in social and environmental injustice.
Our 2021 Summit is DISTRIBUTED through the entire month of July—4 hours every Tuesday (July 6, 13, 20 & 27). Each week we’ll start a conversation about how to precipitate the BIG SHIFT in a focus area. We’ll spotlight success, and find early lessons—innovations that can scale—to help build a shared, equitable and sustainable future. Our sessions and speakers will share ideas on how to structure a system that actually works for our households, our communities, and our planet.
