Neighborhood Resilience Film Screening - Do The Math
NYC’s excellent sustainability programs are moving in the right direction. But as we learned from Hurricane Sandy, we have to plan not just for long-term climate change, but for the extreme weather events which climate change will make more frequent. City efforts are being planned to make NYC more resilient – able to bounce back after change or disruption.
There’s good news: many resilience upgrades can also increase long-term sustainability, save money and create local jobs, all at the same time. Raising public awareness about our environmental, energy and economic challenges will tap into the creativity of New Yorkers – and ensure that our City and our
communities will act on those opportunities.
This fall, we are bringing neighbors and civic leaders together at Coffeed in LIC on September 16, 23 and 30 at 7 PM to explore where sustainability and resilience responses overlap, and how to respond as individuals. Free video screenings will be followed by facilitated group discussion. Coffeed is a locally sourced eco-cafe at the 36th Street stop on the M & R trains in Queens, just a few minutes from midtown Manhattan, downstairs from the Brooklyn Grange rooftop farm. Coffeed is generously providing free coffee and home-baked pastries for the Resilience Film Screenings. http://www.coffeednyc.com/
