Event, October 20, NYC: Living With Nature

A one-day symposium of plenary speakers and breakout workshop sessions, this event is being hosted at the American Museum of Natural History.

But the concept is still largely confined to where environmental entities intersect with discrete entities such as energy providers, agriculturists, developers, and architects. How does this possible disconnect among these sectors play out in the New York Metropolitan region? ...

The central question that we hope to address through this conference is how the sustainability movement relates to biodiversity conservation in the New York metropolitan region. ...

Thanks to Ben Jervey's Green Apple Guide for bringing this to my attention.
