Rolling into Resilience w/ Professor Billy Fields

In this week's episode, John connects with Dr. Billy Fields, Associate Professor of Political Science at Texas State University. The discussion addresses the freedom that comes from mobility choice, the progress being made in San Marcos, and the annual study abroad program he leads to The Netherlands. We also talk about his newly released book, Adaptation Urbanism and Resilient Communities: Transforming Streets to Address Climate Change published by Routledge.

Show Notes:

This episode with Billy Fields, Ph.D. has reinforced our appreciation for just how interconnected everything is in our world, from active mobility to land use to pollution and the climate. Add to that the fact our mobility and stormwater systems can work together rather than against each other.

We encourage everyone to check out this new book Adaptation Urbanism and Resilient Communities: Transforming Streets to Address Climate Change. And courtesy of Dr. Fields you may use the coupon code ESBAC for 20% off.
