Cleveland’s identity is historically tied to the automobile industry, but due to a decline in the region’s automobile manufacturing, greater emphasis on health, and the worsening impacts of climate change, the city’s current dependence on gasoline-powered cars is unsustainable. But how can we imagine a future where transportation is sustainable, healthy, and equitable? And what plans are already unfolding to make this dream a reality?


Join Sustainable Cleveland as they welcome 10 innovators to present their work, ideas, and obsessions all around the topic of sustainable transportation.


This event is free and open to anyone interested in sustainable transportation in Cleveland.
