State of Regionalism: Sustainability

12:30 p.m. | Thursday, August 23, 2018

One in a series of events on the SPUR Regional Strategy.

As part of the SPUR Regional Strategy, we are assessing the state of regionalism and regional governance on a variety of issues, including sustainability. The Bay Area has long been a national leader in promoting environmental solutions. Saving the Bay, preserving the greenbelt and ensuring clean air are some of our region’s great successes, but as the region continues to grow, countless new challenges will materialize. Who should be in charge of these issues as they arise? Join us to discuss the future of sustainability and the environment on the regional stage.
