  • A Green Way Forward: Can we lead with nature in addressing NYC’s climate crisis?

    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 local and international experts in the fields of ecology, engineering and design, 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.
