How PlaNYC Initiatives Can Green New York City and Beyond

Hosted by the Wagner Environmental Policy and Action and the Urban Planning Student Association

Mayor Bloomberg announced PlaNYC on Earth Day in 2007 to provide a guide for New York City's future growth.  The plan addresses ambitious goals in the areas of land, water, transportation, energy, air, and climate change.  Ultimately, the plan aims to reduce New York City's greenhouse gas emissions by 30%.  As the implementation of the plan continues, can the framework be utilized in other cities? 

The event will feature representatives from the NYC Mayor's Office of Long Term Planning and Sustainability and ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability.
