The New School Celebrates Climate Week NYC 2017


Climate Week NYC is "one of the key summits in the international calendar and has been driving climate action forward since it was first launched by The Climate Group in 2009." This year, students and faculty from The New School participated in a variety of Climate Week events, sharing design and policy expertise, and promoting environmental and climate justice.


Michelle DePass, Director of the Tishman Center and Dean of the Milano School of International Affairs, Management, and Urban Policy joined a panel of experts for a discussion entitled “Fear and Hope in the Climate Conversation,” presented by The Climate Museum.


As part of the Nth Degree Series, a group of New School faculty including Tishman Center Affiliates Judith Albert and Boris Grinkot organized "Paths to Action," a full-day event with world cafe style workshop followed by a panel discussion focused on public engagement and adoption of sustainability and climate mitigation strategies.


The Tishman Center partnered with the Hip Hop Caucus to sponsor "People's Climate Music: Frontline Communities- The Untold Stories of the Climate Movement." The event featured live performances from world-class artists and compelling conversations with community and cultural leaders will reveal what it's like to fight for survival on thefrontlines, what climate solutions we have now, and how you can use your power to make positive change.
