School of Sustainability Road Trip

School of Sustainability Road Trip

The world needs navigators.

The face of our world is changing every day; how will you navigate the future? The School of Sustainability at Arizona State University prepares undergraduate and graduate students to view complex problems and solutions systemically, work collaboratively with people of differing perspectives, and create strategic solutions for a desirable, more sustainable future.

About John Martinson

Your road-tripper in chief is John Martinson, president of the School of Sustainability’s alumni chapter. He graduated with his Executive Master of Sustainability Leadership in 2016.

About the Trip

John will travel more than 6,000 miles over the course of one month. He’ll pass through 10 US states and 2 provinces in Canada, making dozens of stops in cities and towns along the way.

A carbon-neutral adventure

John Martinson created this road trip as a father-son bonding opportunity. The trip is supported in part by the School of Sustainability and the Rocky Mountain Institute. While he is on the road, John will educate travelers about carbon neutral road-tripping and demonstrate that an electric car can make such a trip.

In addition to two events especially for ASU alumni, John invites fellow alumni, road trip followers and fellow Tesla fans to come and see him at any of the events listed on his website.
