Sponsored by:
Standing Committee on Ecology and Transportation (ADC30)
Standing Committee on Environmental Analysis in Transportation (ADC10)

A panel briefly presents information on the ways that sustainability is defined by and practiced in different fields of transportation practice. Participants will gather into groups to discuss a vision of ecologically sustainable transportation and to define critical and relevant issues and questions, via a series of five common questions. Input from the groups will then be used to develop a short white paper to help define the growing theory and practice of ecologically sustainable transportation.
