Net Zero Neighborhoods For NYC

Tuesday, Dec 10, 2019

Conclusive strategies have emerged from interdisciplinary approaches to sustainable development challenges + opportunities across urban sectors. Through a comparative framework of global best practices, this discussion will give context to these integrated strategies, highlighting applied research solutions that may be universal, or in some cases place-specific, while envisioning outcomes + identifying pathways to a prototypical Net-Zero carbon district in a 2050 New York City.

While supporting existing local + global policy benchmarks + aligning with globally accepted emissions inventory frameworks, Net Zero Neighborhoods provides a platform for innovative thought leadership, knowledge sharing + advocacy towards progressive solutions for achieving a sustainable city. The discussion will identify the need to bridge the broad scope of city-scale sustainability frameworks + the more narrow-scale of building-specific metrics with a set of integrated built environment connections that translate through low carbon planning tools + methods for the dense urban district. Implications for both policy and practice across disciplines, as well as the potential of these best practices to impact + enhance the quality of everyday urban life in the future, will be considered.

Sponsors: AIANY Planning and Urban Design Committee; AIANY Committee on the Environment (COTE); + the Consulate General of Switzerland in New York

Date: Tuesday, December 10, 6:30 - 9:00 pm
