Mannahatta 2409: Crowd-Sourcing Designs for a Sustainable and Resilient City

Wednesday, Dec 11, 2013

To promote awareness of local ecological issues and raise community environmental consciousness, the Gowanus Canal Conservancy is happy to announce this final Wednesday night lecture of 2013.

Fantastic as a center of arts, culture, and economy, New York City has unresolved ecological problems including stormwater management, greenhouse emissions, invasive species, and fouled waterways that challenge long-term sustainability and resilience. Imagining a city that lasts requires thinking of the city as an ecosystem, and that in turn requires simultaneously considering lifestyle, land use, and advancing climate change. Mannahatta2409.org is a new website, to be launched in January 2014, that will enable New Yorkers to develop and share their ideas for climate-resilient neighborhoods.

Sponsors: Funded by a cooperative agreement awarded by the Environmental Protection Agency to the New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission in partnership with the New York-New Jersey Harbor Estuary Program.

Speaker: Dr. Eric Sanderson, author of Mannahatta:A Natural History of New York, is a Senior Conservation Ecologist at the Wildlife Conservation Society.

Date: Wednesday, December 11, 6:30-9:00 pm

Location: Gowanus Studio Space, 166 7th Street, Brooklyn (between 2nd & 3rd Avenue)

RSVP: Suggested donation of $5. For more information, please email info@gowanuscanalconservancy.org
