Super Storm Sandy 10-year Anniversary Tour | Emphasis on Sea Level Rise and Mitigation
This 2-hour-and-45-minute cruise focuses on key developments and sites related to climate change and environmental justice in New York City. Led by an expert AIANY guide, participants will learn about how interdisciplinary teams of urban planners, architects, landscape architects, developers, and community groups are addressing storm surges, intense rains, and hotter temperatures. Learn how climate change is affecting our city and people, as well as the actions NYC is taking to reduce its carbon footprint and mitigate threats.
Interwoven throughout the tour will be illustrations of the adverse environmental impacts of climate change and pollution on moderate-income neighborhoods and communities of color. The tour will also highlight many green buildings and sustainable designs that reduce energy consumption, water usage and pollution while creating healthy living environment
