    On Thursday, May 4th, candidates for City Council, Borough President and all citywide offices gathered for a morning of discussions on critical environmental issues facing New York City. Our 2017 Environmental Candidate School, designed to improve understanding of environmental and public health issues facing our city, featured two panels of environmental experts and advocates. Candidates asked insightful questions about how to solve specific environmental problems in their communities and followed up with advocates at the conclusion of each panel.

    A third panel featured four current City Council members: Mark Levine, Costa Constantinides, Rafael Espinal, and Donovan Richards, who provided their own insights and experience on running for office and working in City Hall.

    NYLCVEF also presented our 2017 Green Guide, a comprehensive source for candidates to learn about opportunities and approaches to persistent environmental issues in the City.

    We hope we were able to help foster meaningful connections and begin a dialogue between candidates for office and New York City’s leading environmental experts, and that the event provided the necessary information and resources to help candidates form their own environmental policy platforms going into the 2017 election season.

    Many thanks to NYU Wagner for hosting us, and to Cozen O’Connor, Link2Tek, Prime New York, and Red Horse Strategies for sponsoring our event.
