The host of National Public Radio’s Sunday evening program “Humankind” will talk about transportation and its effect on climate change at a Sustainable Belmont meeting on Wednesday, May 2 in the Belmont Public Library.
Host David Freudberg, who is a Belmont resident, will discuss his recent series “Passengers,” a documentary about how personal transportation choices – whether we take public transportation or private vehicles – can impact the environment.
He will cover questions about the benefits of switching to public transit even just once or twice a month; why young people are flocking to trains and buses; and how using public transit can help with weight loss.
Freudberg’s show “Humankind” profiles people and institutions that serve humanity. It can be heard in Boston on Sundays at 6 p.m. on WGBH 89.7 FM.
At the May 2 meeting, Ian Todreas of the Belmont Energy Committee will give an update on alternative transportation in Belmont, including Bike Belmont, which you can follow on Facebook.
There will also be discussion of a new walking map of Belmont, which will be distributed at the meeting.
The meeting will be held in the Assembly Room at the Belmont Public Library from 7 – 9 p.m. It is free and open to anyone.
