Preparing for Today: Urgency, Engagement & Action in the Age of Uncertainty

 

 

Hurricanes. Fires. Earthquakes, Fierce Winds. Unseasonable warmth. New climate realities are being made daily, and NYC is not immune. Let’s keep moving on making our communities and universities more resilient.

On October 25th, all are invited to help the Stanton Building Task Force and the Tishman Environment and Design Center (TEDC) at The New School take next steps toward return of a former community building. Located at the north end of Sara D Roosevelt Park in the center of lower Manhattan, the Stanton Building has great potential to create an all-ages space for community wellbeing and social resiliency, with a community climate action lab, a navigation desk for homeless community members and an emergency hub for times of disruption.

This community and curricular vision is taking the next step forward and your input is greatly valued! As Sandy’s 5th anniversary approaches, please take part in an innovating evening furthering the vision of a socially resilient community center with an educational agenda engaging today’s unprecedented challenges.

This free 2-hour event includes an overview and breakouts with community partners, faculty, students, and all interested in local climate action. All are welcome. RSVP.

Wednesday Oct 25th from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at The New School, Wollman Hall (65 West 11th St).

Spanish and Chinese interpreters will be available. Refreshments are thanks to LES Ready.
