Join the NYU Wagner Urban Planning Student Association, the Student Relations Committee of the APA NY Metro Chapter, and APA New York City Section for an exciting sustainability discussion focusing on visions for New York City to be more resilient, eco-friendly, and equitable.

 

In a rapidly changing world, urban planners have the opportunity to develop meaningful policies that can positively shape the urban form of the future. Cities have the potential to instill economic growth, solve environmental challenges, and improve the quality of life of millions of people. However, the role of the planner must be reevaluated in order to meet the sustainability needs of our city. This panel seeks to explore the role(s) of the urban planner in a world of growing environmental constraints and challenges. Drawing on insight from the top voices in the field, we hope to shine light on the role of planning for a sustainable future.
