Urban Green – NYC Next: Trends for a Changing City
To reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2050, New York City will continue to undergo some pretty big changes. And as buildings are responsible for more than two-thirds of the city’s emissions, the majority of those changes will occur in the places where we live, work and gather. But what can we expect these changes to be? How will buildings in 2050 look different from today? Who will do the work? And how does it all fit into the larger scope of the Paris Climate Agreement, which aims to bring emissions to net zero by 2050?
In our 2023 conference, NYC Next: Trends for a Changing City, we’re bringing together experts to explain three key trends that will shape the city: getting to net zero, converting offices to apartments, and centering resiliency in NYC’s buildings of the future. We’ll talk to the individuals who have an inside look at these trends and are doing the work to make NYC’s climate targets a reality.
