Sustainability includes diverse topics and it is impossible to attend all the sessions related to sustainability at the TRB Annual Meeting. This workshop begins with a series of brief presentations from experts in a range of fields—equity, environment, and economics—about what they learned at the 2020 Annual Meeting. Presentations will be followed by facilitated small-group discussions that will be used to help advance sustainability initiatives within TRB and generate strategic approaches for participants to advance sustainable practices within their own work programs.
