An initiative of the National Council for Workforce Education, the Sustainability Education and Economic Development Center (SEED) supports community colleges and their partners with curriculum and resources to transform educational programs for a sustainable future.
Transportation Research Board: Climate Change
This material can be used to create your transportation and climate change section of your curricula. An Act of Congress, signed by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863, calls upon the National Academy of Science (NAS) to provide independent advice to the government on matters related to science and technology. According to the Transportation Research Board (TRB), “Reducing transportation-related emissions of carbon dioxide–the primary greenhouse gas–that contribute to climate change and adapting to the consequences of climate change will be among the biggest public policy challenges facing the transportation profession over the coming decades. This website serves as a gateway to TRB activities and products addressing transportation and climate change.”
As the Sustainability, Education and Economic Development (SEED) Center is a FREE initiative offered by the National Council for Workforce Education, we strive to provide our users with up-to-date information and materials. We encourage you to submit resources or open-source curriculum for possible posting on the SEED Center website.
Note: SEED is managed by a team of higher education experts who vet and curate resources and curriculum. Thus, not all submitted materials will appear on the website.
