Haagen-Smit Symposium 2008
This page last reviewed March 29, 2011
The 2008 Haagen-Smit Symposium
brought together 80 policymakers and other progressive thinkers from throughout California to talk candidly about
the role of land use and transportation in meeting AB 32 requirements
and achieving California’s vision of a low-carbon future.
The panel presentations and discussions were stimulating and insightful – the PowerPoint presentations are provided below. But, more importantly, two action-oriented documents were produced during the final stages of the symposium that help set the stage for development of the land use and transportation section of the AB 32 Scoping Plan. These two documents, the Haagen-Smit Declaration and Seascape Action Plan lay out priority actions needed to meet AB 32 goals by reducing greenhouse gas emissions associated with land use and transportation and recommendations from the Haagen-Smit particpants for ARB consideration as it develops the Scoping Plan.
(Note: if no presentation is linked to a panelist, that panelist did not have a Powerpoint.)
