Climate Week NYC: Equity and the Power of Parks

COVID-19. Racial injustice. Climate change. Parks and open spaces have often served as a haven for New Yorkers in good and challenging times. Our parks are essential. They provide a safe and inclusive space to experience nature and come together as a community in celebration and in protest — all while cleaning our air and improving our environment.

As New York City works to become a more equitable city in the face of these growing challenges, what role do our parks and natural resources play in achieving that goal? Whether they’re mitigating the Urban Heat Island effect or simply providing safe and inclusive spaces to experience nature, our city’s parks need investment by our government, as well as community support, funding, and advocacy to be beneficial for all New Yorkers.

During Climate Week NYC, join the Natural Areas Conservancy, Prospect Park Alliance, and WE ACT on Tuesday, September 22, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. for a virtual panel discussion as we share how our organizations are employing a wide range of strategies and solutions to advance equity and accessibility in New York City’s parks.

This event is limited to 100 spots through Zoom. Please only sign up if you plan to attend.
