Is Sustainability Sustainable? A Post-Bloomberg NYC Panel Discussion

Tuesday, Oct 22, 2013

With the Mayoral election drawing closer, this panel will explore the progression of PlaNYC:2030, New York City's sustainability plan, from its inception through today, with a focus on what's next for the Office of Long-Term Planning and Sustainability in the post-Bloomberg era. The discussion will highlight the opportunities and challenges that a changing administration can present for programs that have been championed by the out-going administration. Taking lessons learned from other cities across the globe, we will discuss how NYC can continue its path of urban sustainability leadership.
