How do we advance environmental and climate justice goals as a city? This is a question that the NYC administration is looking to address in many ways, one of the which is the appointment of EJ leaders to posts in their offices like the Office of Climate Policy and Programs and appointments to bodies like the NYC Panel on Climate Change (NPCC).
Join representatives from these groups in a conversation about how NYC as a city will advance their climate and environmental justice agendas in the short, medium and long term.
