Sep 15 Presentation: Will Trains Replace Cars?

Special Presentation: Tuesday, September 15. 7:30-8:45 a.m. CVTC Gateway Center, Room 147, 2320 Alpine Road, Eau Claire

Join us as Author William Draves presents his provocative view that trains will replace cars during the first part of the 21st Century in much the same way as the automobile replaced the horse & buggy in the last century.  Draves is president of Learning Resources Network (LERN), the national association for continuing adult education based in River Falls,  and is co-author of the book  “Nine Shift – Work, Life and Education in the 21st Century.”  This meeting is sponsored by the West Central Wisconsin Rail Coalition as an opportunity to spur discussion of the changing roles of each mode of transportation in the coming years.

You can preview some of the reasons in the Op-Ed piece by Draves that appeared in the September 4 Eau Claire Leader Telegram .
