Queens Museum Flushing Meadows Corona Park NEW YORK NY 11368
Join us for a day-long public assembly on the Green New Deal (GND). Located in US Congressional District 14, jurisdiction of the GND Resolution’s sponsor Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), the Queens Museum—home of the Panorama of the City of New York and located in the heart of the nation’s most diverse borough—will be hosting a wide array of advocates, organizers, and political leaders to explore the GND’s relationship to society, policy, and the built environment. The event will focus on modeling democratic debates that seriously consider the ambitions and challenges of the GND by thinking systemically and across scales.
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 (GND)—most famously as drafted in US H. Res. 109 and S. Res. 59, but echoed by politicians 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” is being organized by the Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture, together with the Queens Museum, the American Institute of Architects New York (AIANY), the Architecture Lobby, Francisco Casablanca (¿Quién Nos Representa?), and Gabriel Hernandez Solano.
At the Buell Center, this initiative forms part of the “Power: Infrastructure in America” project, 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.
