Today: Hoosier Environmental Council executive director Jesse Kharbanda is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about this weekend's 14th annual "Greening The Statehouse" conference which is, once again, being conducted virtually due to the pandemic. There will be expert panel discussions on urban and rural environmental justice, climate policy, solar energy, wetlands policy, and changing the paradigm in areas of higher pollution like here in Northwest Indiana. Gary Public Transportation Corp. planning and marketing director David Wright talks about the Fall Summit, an opportunity to learn about plans for renovations and new bus shelters, new branding for the paratransit service “Access 219” and about the rollout of new vehicles, including new electric-powered buses coming to GPTC routes. And Indiana Youth Institute president and CEO Tami Silverman is here with the monthly chat on issues surrounding children. This one covers the upcoming holidays, and the benefits of teaching kindness and gratitude to our children.
