Most of New York City was built before “sustainability” was even a word, but now it is poised to become the most environmentally friendly city in America. Retrofitting buildings, greening the grid, installing solar, and more will require a lot of people in boots making it a reality. Join us to talk about the trades, crafts, and the education needed to be part of what promises to be a huge workforce of green collar jobs. Come hear from professionals involved in various aspects of converting our buildings from using fossil fuels to electricity.
As the populations of cities continue to grow, there is more pressure to increase housing stock and expand the transportation system to keep up with demand. While cities like New York City certainly have parts of the puzzle solved, there isn’t widespread implementation of best practices to make buildings and the neighborhoods in which they reside sustainable in an affordable, equitable way that checks off all the boxes.
