The New New York Activists: Urban Green Innovators

April 27, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


New York may be known as a concrete jungle, but it is also an important center of green activism. To mark the 45th anniversary of Earth Day, the Museum of the City of New York will discuss how citizens, entrepreneurs, and policy makers are making an impact on our city’s environment, today and for the future. Join their panelists for a conversation about how we can connect environmental and economic justice, balance ecological and development concerns, and strive for a greener—and more equitable—city. Co-presented with New America NYC.  

Donnel Baird: Founder, BlocPower.
Bomee Jung: City Planning Commissioner, and Deputy Director of the New York City Office of Enterprise Community Partners, Inc.
Georgia Levenson Keohane (moderator): Senior Fellow at New America and Director of the Program on Profits and Purpose.
Peggy Shepard, Executive Director, WE ACT for Environmental Justice.
