UWC Day - UWC NYC

Climate of Change: How NYC is preparing for its environmental challenges

In a time in which the consequences of climate change are increasingly devastating, disproportionately affecting women, communities of color and low-income communities, the UWC mission to bring about peace and a sustainable future for all becomes more urgent day by day. While many national governments struggle to tackle the man-made climate crisis, “Generation Greta” is calling for bold action and systemic change for climate justice. UWC Day 2019 will be dedicated to exploring creative, thoughtful and meaningful ways to bring about this change. 

The UWC NYC board invites you to participate in a series of afternoon conversations on NYC's climate resiliency plan on Saturday, September 14th. We have arranged a number of speakers, including a creative urban planner, a representative from the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, and a community and economic development researcher from Cornell. The event will be followed by our monthly SSS at Vol de Nuit.

When? Sep 14, 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM

Where? NYU GC Colloquium (5th floor), NYU Global Center, 238 Thompson St, New York, NY 10012
