Challenges for a Sustainable Future: Public Engagement is Key

 

Presenter: Julie Mayfield, Asheville City Council Member and Co-Director, MountainTrue

 

Abstract: Welcome to a very special region in Appalachia that faces growing challenges such as wildfires, flooding, pollution, and landslides.  Sustainable solutions are both human and ecology-based.  My work on Asheville City Council has focused on public transit, affordable housing, managing growth, and making the transition to clean, renewable energy.  Often, the work is more about connecting people and finding common ground.  I’ve worked with local communities to protect our forests and rivers and to make our region healthier and more sustainable, and I advocate for these same issues with our legislators.

 

Biography: Julie Mayfield was elected to Asheville City Council in November 2015 and is also co-director of MountainTrue, a regional environmental advocacy organization.  Her primary areas of advocacy are transportation, clean energy, affordable housing, and land use.  She received her undergraduate degree from Davidson College and her law degree from Emory University School of Law.
