April’s Forum will be the annual Patty Noonan Memorial Forum on Policy.
In September of 2014, Mayor DiBlasio released the “One City, Built to Last” Plan, which unveiled a historic goal for NYC- to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by 2050, and to chart a long-term course for a total transition away from fossil fuels to renewable sources of energy. At this forum, Bomee Jung, co-founder of GreenHomeNYC will moderate a panel of policy experts in conversation about the policies needed for neighborhoods to get beyond incremental energy reductions and put us on the path to achieve the 80×50 plan goals.

Laurie Kerr, Director of Advocacy, Urban Green Council
Rory Christian, Director, New York Clean Energy, Environmental Defense Fund
