Carlton Eley, class of 1998, will be speaking at “Tuesdays at APA” on January 12th in Washington, D.C.  Mr. Eley is a Senior Environmental Protection Specialist at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and has a long history of “normalizing environmental justice during the planning process,” and “equitable development in the public sector.” His presentation, “Equitable Development: Social Equity by Design,” will discuss “how the pathway to a sustainable future is dependent on place-based strategies that move beyond ‘changing brown to green’ and increasingly require proficiency with addressing quality of life goals while supporting community parity.”

Every month, the APA District of Columbia chapter hosts a speaker and discussion about innovative ideas and projects related to urban planning. For those not in D.C., the talks are available on podcast.
