A Green Way Forward

CAN NYC LEAD WITH NATURE IN ADDRESSING OUR CLIMATE CRISIS?

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29th 2020

Virtual Event at 12pm EST

Eight years have passed since Hurricane Sandy, and although NYC has invested in multiple planning efforts and policy changes, there is still a lot to do. Through a panel discussion with community leaders, ecologists, engineers and designers, this event will explore what it would look like if we focused on inviting nature back into the urban fabric as a method of adapting to climate change.

Panelists:

Judah Asimov, Rockaway Initiative for Sustainability and Equity

Georganna Deas, Coney Island Beautification Project

Jane Madwick, Wetlands International

Henk Nieboer, Ecoshape

Kate Orff, SCAPE; Center for Resilient Cities and Landscapes, Columbia University

Moderator: Sarah Charlop- Powers, Natural Areas Conservency

*Final Panel Configuration - TBA

We hope you can join us!
