How do you think Mayor De Blasio should promote sustainable, healthy and resilient buildings?
For the first time in 12 years, New Yorkers will have a new mayor. It’s time to start Talking Transition. Talking Transition is an open conversation about the future of New York City to help shape the next mayor’s goals and strategies. Whether you’re a lifelong New Yorker or you’ve just arrived, everyone has a unique vision for this great city. Now is your chance to tell the new administration what’s important to you and your community.
Together with Urban Green Council and other sustainability leaders, Solar One is co-hosting a discussion on Sustainable, Healthy, and Resilient Construction on Sunday, November 17th from 10:00-11:30 AM. The event will take place at Hudson Square’s Duarte Square in the Talking Transitions Tent- a new gathering place for New Yorkers to talk about the future of the city.
Please join us to share your questions, stories, and ideas for the city’s future. The brief program will include small, intimate discussions with some of the city’s most esteemed players in sustainability, followed by highlights delivered to the entire group.
Attendees will gather in small groups and be asked to reflect on three questions:
- What are the challenges to making more energy efficient, healthy, and resilient homes?
- Why has such a small proportion of apartment and single-family homeowners engaged on these issues?
- What can the new mayor do to better engage them?
This is your opportunity to make the transition count. Please join us.
