Every year, transportation enthusiasts get together on a Saturday to share their ideas and map out new possibilities. With so much transportation legislation on the way, the 2022 virtual TransportationCamp will be more important than ever. Registration is now open!!
The reauthorization and budget reconciliation embraced the traditional approach to transportation policy: a whole lot more of the same, failing status quo. There’s a little bit of money to fight the climate crisis, encourage safer streets, and expand transit, but there’s a whole lot more to make those same problems worse—more emissions, more congestion, more pollution, more dangerous streets, more highways undermining transit investments. Where do we go from here? That’s where TransportationCamp comes in.
Now’s not the time to sit back and listen
TransportationCamp is an “unconference” bringing together passionate people who are ready to create and participate in the conversation. This is a place for all self-professed “transportation nerds,” from advocates to planners, from students to business leaders, to propose and lead sessions. Worried about a street widening project near you? Excited about new mobility technologies? This is the place to share.
There are tons of ways to make our infrastructure safer, more equitable, and more sustainable. By bringing together a melting pot of perspectives, TransportationCamp helps uncover new pathways forward. And bonus: it’s a lot of fun, too.
We’ll convene virtually once again this year, so have Zoom and Slack downloaded and ready to go. As for the rest of the details (including how to submit your session ideas between January 3 – 7, 2022), keep an eye on your inbox. We’ll keep you posted in the weeks ahead.
