Our Work

NYLCVEF uses a variety of tactics to educate the public, candidates and elected officials on sustainability issues. We produce educational publications, hold forums on conservation issues and conduct civic engagement campaigns to empower more New Yorkers to be effective advocates.

Civic Engagement

Through our civic engagement campaigns and programs, the NYLCV Education Fund seeks to empower citizens to be effective advocates for the environment.

Nonpartisan Electoral Activities

NYLCVEF’s nonpartisan electoral activities usually take place leading up to an election and seek to educate voters and candidates on the critical connection between elected office and environmental protections and by encouraging environmentalists to vote.

Policy Forums

NYLCVEF educational forums bring together elected officials, environmental leaders, and the general public for discussion on timely environmental policy issues and their solutions.


NYLCVEF educational publications seek to help New Yorkers understand local environmental challenges and how they can be solved.
