June 4, 2020 Research Snaps Webinar: Mitigation v. Adaptation, Transportation and Land-Use Planning to Combat Climate Change

10a.m.-10:30a.m. | #MTIResearchSnaps 

Recent extreme weather events in California—wildfires, droughts, and flooding—make abundantly clear the need to plan effective responses to both the causes and consequences of climate change. New Mineta Transportation Institute (MTI) research, Harmonizing Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation in Transportation and Land-Use Planning in California Cities, analyzes the climate plans for 23 California cities in addition to interviewing 25 local, regional, and state officials working on climate planning.  Identifying transportation and land-use (TLU) strategies that both mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and successfully prepare communities to be less severely impacted by climate change remains a challenge. The study assessed existing city plans and identifies the potential pitfalls between mitigation and adaptation. Then, it establishes methods the state can implement to help cities effectively incorporate integrated TLU actions.

June 26, 2020 11th Annual Mineta National Transportation Policy Summit presents 'Paying for Transportation in California: Does COVID-19 Change Everything?'

10-11:30a.m. (PDT)

The COVID-19 pandemic threatens every aspect of transportation funding in California. State revenues from federal, state, regional, and local taxes and fees are all at risk.  Since California’s shelter-in-place order went into effect in March, the state has already faced plummeting revenues from gasoline taxes, tolls, transit fares, and sales taxes. These revenue sources will most likely continue to be severely threatened in the coming months and possibly even years. 

Panelists will discuss the opportunities for every level of government to help recover transportation revenues in our uncertain future. Can we rely on our traditional mix of revenue sources? Will the COVID-19 crisis stimulate innovation in transportation finance? 

These and other revenue options will be discussed at the 11th Annual Norman Y. Mineta National Transportation Policy Summit.

We are living in unprecedented times and amid one of the most challenging moments our country has ever faced; however, the class of 2020 has persevered. Now more than ever it is critical to come together as a community to recognize and celebrate our graduating students. And although we cannot come together in person, we can join in virtual celebration!

This exciting MSTM celebration includes individualized recognition of each graduate and award presentations. We invite all graduates and their families to join us.

June 26, 2020 CANCELLED - MTI Banquet and Convocation Celebration 2020

While we remain committed to our tech transfer, workforce development activities, and scholarship activities, all in-person MTI events are postponed until the global pandemic passes and the shelter in place directive is lifted. As a result, the 2020 Annual MTI Banquet and Convocation Celebration has been cancelled. We hope to celebrate this year's achievements at next year's 2021 banquet with equal if not greater merriment.  

Understandably, COVID-19 is at the top of many people's minds; however, a webinar is the perfect way to social distance while engaging in knowledgeable research discussions. Join the conversation from anywhere online. We look forward to future event opportunities that will allow us to continue in our mission to improve mobility for all.
