Commuting Solutions’ annual Sustainable Transportation Summit will return in person this year with a focus on air quality in Colorado’s northwest metro region.
The Louisville-based transportation organization will host more than 160 community and government leaders to discuss Front Range air quality, how transportation impacts air pollution and the health impacts of poor air quality.
“Air quality is key to the vitality of our communities, yet we’ve only scratched the surface in what we know about it and the measures we can collectively take to improve it. Every effort, small or large, starts with dialogue in our fight for cleaner air,” Commuting Solutions Executive Director Audrey DeBarros said in a statement.
The summit will include a keynote address from Kathleen (KC) Becker, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator for the Mountains and Plains Region 8 and former Colorado state representative and Speaker of the House.
Becker’s address will be followed by a panel and moderated Q&A with Martha
Rudolph, commissioner of the Colorado Air Quality Control Commission; Shoshana Lew,
executive director of the Colorado Department of Transportation; and Dr. Anthony Gerber, a
pulmonologist affiliated with National Jewish Health-Denver.
The summit is set for July 28 at the Origin Hotel, 8875 Westminster Blvd. in Westminster. Tickets range from $50-$140.
