Leadership forum to hear from local leaders and experts on climate, housing, and safe streets issues in Berkeley.
DATE CHANGE --> NOW WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 13TH
Climate change, air pollution, traffic fatalities: these feel very big and unsolvable.
But they actually can be tackled at the local level. Forward-thinking citizens are needed to take charge. Come hear from our state elected representatives, who are leading on these issues, to find out what YOU can do to combat the big problems.
South Berkeley Now! and North Berkeley Now! -- the two neighborhood groups who are organizing for homes on the Ashby and North Berkeley BART parking lots -- are hosting a leadership forum on housing, climate and safe streets.
The forum will feature Senator Nancy Skinner and Assemblywoman Buffy Wicks, moderated by Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, founder of the Daily Kos. Expert panelists will provide background info on climate change and safe streets: Daniel Kammen is a Distinguished Professor of Energy in the Energy and Resources Group at the University of California, Berkeley and a former Science Envoy for the State Department. Barnali Ghosh is Vice Chair of the Berkeley Transportation Commission, Board member of TransForm, and founded the Berkeley South Asian Walking Tour.
