Susan Engelking, Executive Director of Institute for Community MicroMobility – Virtual Regular Meeting
May 21 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Please join us to hear from Susan Engelking, the founder and executive director of the Institute for Community MicroMobility, based in Austin. It’s an ambitious, passion-driven initiative to cut carbon emissions in cities across the U.S.
Due to the current situation, our meetings are all virtual via ZOOM. Please join us at https://zoom.us/j/3557370404 from the comfort of your home.
The Institute is new, but Susan and her collaborators have been working in the trenches for four years. She recently developed a mobility plan for Community First! Village, the village of tiny homes operated by Mobile Loaves & Fishes.
She’s the author of a new book, Tiny Transit: Cut Carbon Emissions In Your City Before It’s Too Late, to be released this week. She moderated a panel at SXSW a few weeks ago: Six Ways MicroMobility Changes Design.
Susan is happiest as a change agent. She was a key participant in Austin’s economic direction, having managed or edited three successive, aspirational economic development plans spanning 20 years. She was president of the Austin Children’s Museum and instrumental in its transition to become the Thinkery. She was treasurer for Nan McRaven’s campaigns for ACC Trustee. She’s been named Austin Communicator of the Year.
She is now engaged in the fight of our lives. She and her colleagues don’t just talk about climate crisis. They’ve come up with a better, cheaper, more humane mousetrap.
