Resources / Events / June 2022: Clean Transportation Month

 Join the movement – the Metro Vancouver region is leading the next global wave of Clean Transportation innovation.

Join us in June 2022 as public and private sector organizations celebrate the clean transportation sector in the Metro Vancouver region and spotlight local innovations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reimagine the regional transportation experience, and engage with policy and business leaders from around the world.

With demonstration events for families, networking sessions for investors seeking their next new mobility investment opportunity, and panels elevating groundbreaking and disruptive ideas, clean transportation month offers something for everyone.


By having government, industry, academia, and researchers work together, the Metro Vancouver region can take advantage of its strategic advantages in clean transportation, especially in the hydrogen sector, to assume a place as a global leader in the research, development, production, and export of new mobility solutions to climate change.
