D2E: The Future of Cars at Boston's Down 2 Earth Conference Apr 4th - Hynes Convention Center

This Saturday, April 4, 3pm EST at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Boston's Down 2 Earth Conference will be hosting a panel on the Future of Cars on the Main stage.

This panel is meant to tackle some of the most pressing and relevant issues facing automotive consumers today. The following folks have been invited to participate including LM. D2E focuses on sustainable living and we are honored to be part of the effort. Come check it out. Should be lively.

The Moderator is Kenneth E. Kruckemeyer (AIA, ASCE, Transportation Strategist)

Ken Kruckemeyer has been walking, cycling, riding transit and driving in Boston since he arrived here as a student in 1963. After his early and successful efforts as an anti-highway activist he went on to manage the design of the transit, railroad, streets and parkland of the Southwest Corridor that took the highway’s place. He subsequently became a commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Public Works, in charge of highway and bridge design. More recently he has taught engineering and planning students at MIT to design transportation systems that will nurture the urban environment.

Ken currently consults as a Transportation Strategist; and is a co-Director of the International Honors Program "Cities in the 21st Century." He is an Architect with degrees from Princeton University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; and was a Loeb Fellow in Advanced Environmental Studies at Harvard University. As a vigilant advocate for the public sphere, he is a founding member of WalkBoston and the LivableStreets Alliance.

The panelists are as follows:

Brad Beauchamp, Fuel Cell Activities, GM
Working on gas friendly and gas free solutions to reduce US petroleum dependence.

John B. Rogers, Jr., President, CEO and Co-Founder at Local Motors
Local Motor's mission is to lead the next generation of automotive manufacturing, design, and technology in order to revolutionize the industry with game-changing efficient vehicles.

Donald Sadoway, Department of Materials Science & Engineering, MIT
Down in his basement laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Donald Sadoway and his students are hunting for the perfect battery. Not for cell phones or laptop computers, but to power a future generation of automobiles or perhaps the electric grid.
