The New New York Activists

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, we're partnering with the Museum of the City of New York to discuss how citizens, entrepreneurs, and policy makers are making an impact on our city's environment, today and for the future. Join our 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.
