Can Development and Conservation Co-Exist in NYC and How?

Development in New York City is inevitable. But can it be used to foster conservation efforts and advance nature rather than replace or fracture it? Join community representatives and experts for a discussion on this pressing and complex topic. Moderated by NYC Council Member Justin Brannan, panelists include Daniel Atha, Director of Conservation Outreach at NYBG; Monika Jain, Senior Lead Urban Designer at NYC Department of City Planning; Bill Browning, Environmental Strategist and Founding Partner at Terrapin Bright Green; and Annel Hernandez, Associate Director at the NYC Environmental Justice Alliance.

This event is brought to you by Science of the Living City and NYC Nature Goals 2050, in partnership with Climate Week NYC.
