City College of New York (CCNY)
9:00AM - 1:00PM
The operations of cleaner vehicles in Northern Manhattan is important for the community because of the high rates of asthma and other pollution-related diseases. The alternative fuels project targets business owners who can create great community relations by cleaning up their vehicles. The local community also learns more about the need for alternative fuels and their benefits, and WE ACT creates solid partnerships with businesses that want to learn how to stop polluting.
If you know of a business that is a good candidate for conversion or a business that is parking trucks or buses in your neighborhood, or for more information on the alternative fuels project and the upcoming Alternative Fuels Workshop, please contact Sarah Massey at (212) 961-1000, ext. 304.
Friday, May 4, 2001 at Steinman Hall at 140th and Convent Avenue, from 9:00 AM to 1:30 PM.
Why Clean Fuels Now?
Thinking About a New Truck? Consider a Clean Fuel Vehicle
How can the overall problem of air pollution be addressed? There isn't any one solution. Rather, attempts must be made to bring technology, public policy and market incentives to the fore. We face a significant crossroads in the early part of the 21st Century. There are a growing number of technological options which, combined with diesel fuel price increases and state and federal incentives, make alternatives competitive.
We must begin to make our choices now. At the local level, community and business interests can now begin to work together to put the most effective clean fuel technology in place to reduce the impacts of emissions from vehicles of all sizes on the health and well being of residents and workers alike. In Northern Manhattan, a coalition of such interests has organized "Alternative Fuel Vehicles Workshop for Northern Manhattan: Local Government, Businesses and Residents Partnering for a Healthier Community" - a half-day forum which will bring together community organizations, businesses, public agencies, and elected officials to explore incentives for converting fleets to use clean fuels.
Join us at City College on May 4, 2001!
