New York may be known as a concrete jungle, but it is also an important center of green activism. To mark the 45th anniversary of Earth Day, we'll discuss how citizens, entrepreneurs, and policy makers are making an impact on our city's environment, today and for the future. Join our panelists for a conversation about how we can connect environmental and economic justice, balance ecological and development concerns, and strive for a greener—and more equitable—city. Reception to follow! Donnel Baird, Founder, BlocPower Bomee Jung, City Planning Commissioner, and Deputy Director of the New York City Office of Enterprise Community Partners, Inc.
