As we suffer through the deep freeze, you might like to transport yourself back to a more hospitable season when the leaves were green and the neighborhood’s community gardens were in full bloom. But we digress. Here in the dead of winter, we’re talking neighborhood sustainability – a series of public forums kicking off on Monday. Here’s the info from Fourth Arts Block:
Neighborhood Sustainability: One Block At A Time is a conversation series presented by FABNYC and the Cooper Union Institute for Sustainable Design, focused on community led sustainability initiatives. Panelists include artists, practitioners, community advocates and stakeholders actively working towards creative, community-led sustainability initiatives for their neighborhoods and beyond. These discussions will put forth new strategies, questions, and best practices to transform global need into local action.
Monday, January 27th – The Role of Community-Based Leaders & Intermediaries: A dialogue between three community organizations: Anusha Venkataraman from El Puente Presente, Kerri Culhane from Two Bridges, and Betsy Imershein from Fourth Arts Block. Moderated by Cassim Shepard, founding editor of Urban Omnibus.
