A Bold New Transportation Vision in 5 Big Moves

Presentation by the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG)

Join us for this presentation about SANDAG’s bold new vision for building a world class transportation system for San Diego!

“SANDAG is developing a bold new vision for San Diego Forward: The 2021 Regional Plan with the goal of transforming the way people and goods move throughout the San Diego region. The region’s population is anticipated to reach four million by 2050, which will lead to new challenges in maintaining an efficient, equitable, sustainable, and accessible transportation system. Our approach needs to evolve.”

This talk will discuss this new vision and the 5 Big Moves. The 5 Big Moves are the key strategies that will outline a path forward that builds upon existing infrastructure, enhances connectivity, increases safety and sustainability, and improves quality of life.

Complementary light refreshments will be provided by Elaine Byran from Body and Soul Nourishment. This free event is hosted by the North County Climate Change Alliance and the Vista Public Library.

The Burden – Fossil Fuel, the Military, and National Security

“Climate change is real and a direct threat to the national security of the United States.” Defense Secretary James Mattis

Don’t miss this rare screening of the national award-winning documentary “THE BURDEN” (https://www.amresproject.org/the-burden) including a live discussion with the filmmaker. In this film you will learn from top military experts how fossil fuel dependence is our greatest long-term national security threat, and why our military is ready and willing to speed the transition to clean energy.

Joining us via Skype will be “THE BURDEN’s” creator Roger Sorkin who directed, produced, and edited this groundbreaking film in conjunction with the Truman Project. Roger founded and runs the American Resilience Project, which has produced such acclaimed documentaries as “Tidewater” and “Current Revolution”.

Featuring guest moderator Eve Simmons, a decades-long environmental speaker, activist, former Congressional Liaison and Lobbyist, wildlife guide, and Fish and Wildlife Advisory Commissioner. Visit her blog THE GREEN FLASH Awakening Your True Nature… with Eve Simmons.
