Rising Urbanists: Green Infrastructure for Coastal Resilience


Friday, Apr 6, 2018

9:00 am - 6:00 pm

Hunter College
695 Park Ave
New York, NY 10065


The ASLA-NY Student Chapter at the City College of New York is organizing a multi-disciplinary conference to imagine the potential for Green Infrastructure to address socio-economic disparities in sea level rise and storm surge preparedness in New York City. This conference is a groundbreaking forum for the next generation of urbanist thinkers to organize around long-term green infrastructure strategies rather than disciplinary hierarchies. An expansive approach to green infrastructure could drive urban design by engaging alternate interests in building the urban environment.
