NESEA Liaison Steven Lenard dedicated himself to sustainability when he realized he may have been producing more pollution than he was cleaning up as a contractor to the Environmental Protection Agency. After getting a bachelor’s in political science and biology at the University of Chicago, Steven spent four years evaluating potential Superfund sites in New England. This inspired him to focus his studies toward a Master in City Planning at MIT on preventing contamination rather than cleaning it up. Steven is now a City Planner with the Department of City Planning working in the Greenpoint and Williamsburg neighborhoods of Brooklyn.
