New American Road Trip


Sep 11, 2018All Day


As a community-focused complement to the UC3 Forum, the City is hosting a public climate event held by The New American Road Trip: Driving Change. This Electric Vehicle road trip across America will make one of only 4 cross-country stops at the Cortex Commons on Friday,September 21st. Join the Mayor and others at 5:00 pm at the Cortex Commons as the Road Trip crew celebrates local climate efforts in the St. Louis community. The New American Road Trip will award $10,000 in Transportation/Mobility awards for innovative climate solutions (contest details are below). And if you’ve wanted to check out an electric vehicle, there will be an EV Ride and Drive, music, an opportunity to sign the One Planet Charter for Climate, and informative tabling by several organizations. I hope you will join us and learn how to take climate action in St. Louis.
