Event Details

EMBARQ - The World Resources Institute Center for Sustainable Transport invites D.C. city officials, planners, transport practitioners, technologists, social media mavens and urban advocates to join us for a discussion about online engagement for sustainable urban mobility in Washington, D.C.

This event is scheduled as part of the city's first Digital Capital Week, a 10-day festival focused on technology, innovation and all things digital in our nation’s capital.

What are we going to talk about?

How urban transportation can be made more sustainable through:

  • Open Data
  • Blogging and Citizen Journalism
  • Government Transparency and Civic Engagement
  • Citizen Collaboration

This is a forum to share best practices, lessons learned, failure stories and ideas of how to put theory into practice, as it relates to the following over-arching questions: What online tools exist in the D.C. area to make transportation more efficient, user-friendly and sustainable? What are some examples of Web-based innovation and collaboration in the D.C. transport sector? How can government, technology and civil society work together to improve the way we move around - by foot, by car, by bike, and by transit - in the nation's capital?

Who's coming?
