Join us for a public assembly on the Green New Deal (GND). On Sunday, November 17, 2019, from 10:00am–6:00pm at the Queens Museum, “The Green New Deal: A Public Assembly” will gather a wide array of advocates, organizers, and elected officials to explore the GND’s relationship to society, policy, and the built environment.

Climate change is a crisis of unevenly experienced and systemic injustices that asks hard questions of scholars, practitioners, and community members alike. The Green New Deal—most famously as drafted in US H. Res. 109 and S. Res. 59, but echoed by elected officials and activists around the world—addresses these questions head-on, linking equity, the environment, and the economy to the transformations necessitated by the climate crisis.

“The Green New Deal: A Public Assembly” will focus on modeling democratic debates that seriously consider the ambitions and challenges of the GND by thinking systemically and across scales. The public event includes morning workshops and an afternoon series of discussions to encourage exchange among invited guests representing a range of disciplines as well as the general public. A detailed schedule and list of participants will be regularly updated on Eventbrite.

Located at the Queens Museum—home of the Panorama of the City of New York and in the heart of the nation’s most diverse borough—“The Green New Deal: A Public Assembly” is taking place within US Congressional District NY 14, jurisdiction of the GND Resolution’s sponsor Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The event is organized by the Queens Museum, the American Institute of Architects New York (AIA New York), The Architecture Lobby, Francisco J. Casablanca (¿Quién Nos Representa?), and Gabriel Hernández Solano (GND Organizer), together with the Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture at Columbia University.

At the Buell Center, “The Green New Deal: A Public Assembly” forms part of the project “Power: Infrastructure in America,” within which the Center is organizing a series of research, curricular, and programming initiatives to consider the social, technical, and political contours of the ambitious—but still largely undefined—proposal.

Spanish interpretation services will be provided for the afternoon assembly, beginning at 1:00pm. The Queens Museum strives to be accessible to all visitors. For more information regarding access, and to make any requests, please see the Queens Museum website.

Les invitamos a participar en una asamblea pública sobre el Green New Deal (GND) el domingo, 17 de noviembre de 2019, de las 10:00 a las 18:00 en el Museo de Queens. “The Green New Deal: Una Asamblea Pública” convoca una selección amplia de especialistas, organizadores, y oficiales elegidos para explorar la relación entre el GND, la sociedad, la política, y el ambiente construido.

El cambio climático, siendo una crisis desigual y de injusticias sistemáticas, es un desafío lleno de interrogantes, tanto para académicos, profesionales, y miembros de la comunidad por igual. El Green New Deal—mejor conocido por su redacción en US H. Res. 109 y S. Res. 59, y que resuena con los oficiales elegidos y activistas alrededor del mundo—aborda esas preguntas de una forma directa, enlazando la equidad, el medio ambiente, y la economía a las transformaciones necesarias para enfrentar crisis climática.

“The Green New Deal: Una Asamblea Pública” se enfocará en modelar debates democráticos que consideran seriamente las ambiciones y los retos del GND, pensando sistemáticamente y en varias escalas. Este evento público incluye talleres de trabajo en la mañana, en la tarde y una serie de discusiones para fomentar un intercambio productivo entre los invitados de distintas disciplinas y el público general. Un itinerario detallado y la lista de participantes se actualizará regularmente en Eventbrite.

Al estar ubicado en el Museo de Queens—situado en el corazón del distrito más diverso del país y donde podemos encontrar la maqueta “Panorama of the City of New York”— “The Green New Deal: Una Asamblea Pública” se llevará a cabo dentro del Distrito NY 14 del Congreso de los Estados Unidos, jurisdicción de la patrocinadora de la Resolución del GND, la Representante Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Este evento está organizado por el Museo de Queens, el Instituto Americano de Arquitectos de Nueva York (AIANY), el Lobby de Arquitectura, Francisco J. Casablanca (¿Quién Nos Representa?), y Gabriel Hernández Solano (Organizador del GND), en conjunto con el Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture en Columbia University.

En el Buell Center, “The Green New Deal: Una Asamblea Pública” forma parte del proyecto “Power: Infrastructure in America” (Poder: Infraestructura en América), dentro del cual el Centro está organizando una serie de iniciativas curriculares, investigativas, y programáticas que consideran los entornos sociales, técnicos, y políticos de una propuesta ambiciosa, pero en gran parte indefinida.

Se proveerán servicios de interpretación en español para la asamblea de la tarde, comenzando a las 13:00. El Museo de Queens hace un esfuerzo para ser accesible a todos los visitantes. Para más información sobre acceso y cualquier otra solicitud, por favor visite la página web del museo.
