Green Gowanus Charette: How Do We Make it Happen?
This session will provide an opportunity for members of the community and interested public to develop and discuss ideas to make a Green Gowanus a reality. Each of the speakers will present their experiences of developing and implementing green projects in Brooklyn. Following the presentations, participants will be invited to engage in round table discussions to identifiy specific strategies, projects, or programs that could be implemented to overcome current obstacles.
The Gowanus Canal Conservancy is dedicated to conserving, restoring and insuring maximum public access to the Gowanus Canal as an environment. Our efforts are focused on the canal’s natural environment (water quality, air, soil, flora, fauna and more), the human environment (man-made features that include the architecture, the unseen infrastructure, the street grids - including ancient ones, like the Gowanus Road - the historic environment embodied in landmarks official and unofficial) and the ambient environment (green space, street trees, peace and quiet and all the special qualities that define the place).
All sessions run from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and will be located at Polytechnic University;
Dibner Library, Room LC 400; 333 Jay Street, Brooklyn. Please visit www.poly.edu/directions" for directions.
