Electric vehicles (EVs) require solid and maintained infrastructure.

In this episode of Mother Earth News and Friends, we have a delightful conversation with Dr. Andrea Marpillero-Colomina about the holistic systems needed to support green transportation, and the community space of our streets.

Andrea Marpillero-Colomina is a spatial policy scholar. She researches the intersections of infrastructure, policy, and place. Her passion is figuring out new, accessible ways to make cities work and feel better for the people who inhabit them, while advancing equity, supporting anti-racist practices, honoring history, constructing sustainable infrastructure, and creating healthy and beautiful public space. Her work has taken her to three continents and across the US. She has taught hundreds of undergraduate and graduate students in courses of her own design, at both public and private universities, and been awarded course development funding by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. She holds a PhD in Urban and Public Policy from The New School, an MS in Urban Planning from Columbia University, and a BA from Sarah Lawrence College. She lives and loves in Brooklyn, NY.
