The Road to Detroit

I am really excited because Jamie Henn, one of the organizers involved in the Road to Detroit’s Outreach Bus Tour contacted me today after coming across my personal blog, and gave me some great information about the Road to Detroit project, which is set to convene in Detroit August 20 – 22, 2005.

Jamie is working the grounds crew in San Francisco this summer to prep for the final stop on the Road to Detroit, while some of his fellow RTD organizers travel across the country in a bus powered by used vegetable oil, spreading the word about the importance of creating alternative fuel sources and more fuel-efficient cars.

When the road ends and they arrive in Detroit, the RTD crew and hundreds of youth from across the country will celebrate the Motor City with a weekend packed full of fun things to do. They’ll also be putting on educational events about the importance of fuel-efficiency, and meeting with leaders from all industries, as well as members of the public, to work on hashing out Detroit’s role in creating a new national energy vision.

I’ll be in touch with Jamie before the Drive the Future Weekend, which is the name of the movement’s 3-day culmination in Detroit, and will post more detailed information as it comes available. For now, check out Road to Detroit’s website to learn more about it and how Detroit fits in.
