Climate Change, Health Equity, and Transportation Planning

Team Up, Take Action: Partnering for Health Equity

Breakout Session

Presenters: Terry Johnson, Foundation for Healthy Communities; Dan Quinlan, Vermont Climate and Health Alliance; Rob Werner, NH League of Conservation Voters

The impacts of climate change are increasingly evident. Vulnerable and underrepresented communities are at particular risk, with health equity and social justice implications that must be considered within public policy. Many of these same communities lack safe, complete sidewalks or bike paths, and convenient access to transit, making walking and biking difficult.

The session will review community engagement efforts to address climate change adaptation planning, transportation system planning, and developing public policy actions at the state and local level that decrease inequities.
