From brownfield cleanups to green buildings, New York City has emerged as a global sustainability pioneer in recent years.
But with less than ten months before the current mayoral administration departs, there is no guarantee that the next mayor will continue to make the environment a priority.
Where do the candidates running for New York City mayor stand on critical issues like parks, clean air, stormwater management, traffic congestion and climate change?
Find out for yourself at the 2013 Mayoral Forum on Sustainability.
On Earth Day – April 22, 2013 – the New York League of Conservation Voters Education Fund and The Cooper Union Institute for Sustainable Design will host this major candidate forum, featuring the leading candidates running for mayor. The candidates will be questioned on their positions on parks, waterfront development, traffic congestion, post-Sandy rebuilding and much, much more.
This moderated forum is the first of the campaign season to focus exclusively on sustainability issues. It is also a great opportunity for civic organizations, environmental groups, block associations, voters and all New Yorkers to find out where the candidates stand on issues that matter most.
This is free and open to the public.
