Climate Change Resiliency – Preserving our Neighborhoods and Beyond

We will talk, learn, and strategize around climate change resiliency, specifically as it impacts the Village/Lower Manhattan and look at what various communities and organizations are doing to move us forward in this effort. What is being done, what needs to be done, and how can we get involved to make changes in this critical effort that may determine the future and survival of our communities?

Ana Baptista, Assistant Professor in the Environmental Policy and Sustainability Management Program at the Milano School of International Affairs, Management, and Urban Policy will moderate this panel with Aziz Dehkan, Executive Director of NYC Community Garden Coalition; Felicia Young, founder of Earth Celebrations; and Lynn Englum, City and Policy Manager at Rebuild by Design.

Sponsored by VP, Gardens Rising, Earth Celebrations, and The New School’s Tishman Environment and Design Center.
