Integrating Racial Equity and Climate Justice into Urban Planning and Design: A Workshop for the 4th Assessment of the New York Panel on Climate Change and Affiliated CU Faculty, GSAPP Faculty and Local Stakeholders: The Center for Resilient Cities and Landscapes and the New York City Panel on Climate Change intend to partner to host a series of workshops that aim to bring insight into how to meaningfully integrate racial equity and justice into urban planning and design for  climate resilience. The NPCC Co-Chairs intend to meaningfully address justice, equity, and inclusion in its 4th cycle. Workshops will inform how to center climate justice and the built environment at the new Columbia Climate School.  

Spring 2021 Update: 

The grant recipients plan to deliver both workshops in summer 2021, first with the New York Panel on Climate Change and Mayor's Office of Resiliency, and then with Center for Resilient Cities and Landscapes and GSAPP faculty. More information may be found here.

This project was funded through the Addressing Racism: A Call to Action for Higher Education initiative of the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Advancement.
