Parks and public lands are increasingly being recognized as important local tools to reduce the impact of global climate change on front line communities. The Trust for Public Land is working with cities and communities large and small to reduce climate pollution and protect people and places from the worst impacts. As climate risks continue to increase, cities like NYC are looking to parks and green infrastructure to reduce the impacts of flooding and extreme heat. This panel, part of The Trust for Public Land's Park Bench Chat series and cosponsored by NYU Wagner's Alliance for Climate Change and the Environment, will explore how parks and nature-based solutions are not just helpful–but essential–in efforts to put community and equity at the center of climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies. The event will take place in the historic Puck Building on September 27, 2019 from 4:00-6:30pm.
