Our Built and Natural Environments

Current patterns of land use, building, and travel behavior have affected the environment in many ways. EPA's Smart Growth Program invites you to participate in a webinar on Wednesday, July 24, from 2:00 - 3:00 Eastern that examines how we could reduce those impacts as our nation's population grows.

The webinar will provide an overview of EPA's recent report, Our Built and Natural Environments: A Technical Review of the Interactions among Land Use, Transportation, and Environmental Quality. Dr. Melissa Kramer, the report's author, and John Frece, director of EPA's Office of Sustainable Communities, will discuss how development affects human health and the environment and land use and transportation strategies that yield better environmental results.
