Want to learn how you can green up RI’s transportation?

An alliance of environmental groups, businesses, unions, senior groups and others have joined together to promote a 21st century transportation system that enhances our economy and provides all Rhode Islanders with healthy transportation choices.

Next Thursday, Jan. 28 at 5:30 at the Apeiron Institute’s office at 17 Gordon Avenue in Providence, you can find out what a few key members of this alliance have to say about creating a sustainable transit system here in Rhode Island.

The forum, sponsored by the Apeiron Institute, will feature panelists Catherine Lutz, anthropologist and the Thomas J. Watson, Jr. Family Professor of Anthropology and International Studies at Brown University; John Flaherty, Co-Chair of the RI Coalition for Transportation Choices and Director of Research and Communications for Grow Smart RI; and Mark Therrien, Assistant General Manager for Transit Development, Planning and Grants for the RI Public Transit Authority.

It’s free to Apeiron members and students; $10 for nonmembers. The doors open and snacks will be served at 5:30 p.m. and the panel discussion will begin at 6:30 p.m.
