GREENING THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT

How the Built Environment Can Be a Core Solution to Climate Change

Wednesday, 9/21 2:25 PM - 3:20 PM

 

What if the core solution to adapting to climate change and preventing a more significant natural threat was to thoroughly revisit how we build and renovate our cities, individual houses, and infrastructures? The built environment sector accounts for 40% of global greenhouse gas emissions. The negative role of construction facing climate change and depletion of natural resources increases proportionally with rapid urbanization driven by strong population growth. Our need for more houses and buildings, cities, and infrastructures, unfortunately also means higher carbon costs, energy dependency, and more irreversible environmental damage. Andrew Eil, Head of Climate Risk for North America, Tata, Consultancy Services will join Mark Rayfield, CEO of Saint-Gobain North America, Alan Steel, CEO President of the Javits Center, Andrew Kimball, President of New York City Economic Development in a conversation about how existing construction solutions can help make the planet a better home.

Designed to inspire, immerse yourself at the intersection of art and action with two special Climate Arts installations from award-winning artists who are using their gifted talents to bring attention to the climate crisis and inspire meaningful change.

 
 
The Climate Museum presents a preview of Someday, all this by artist David Opdyke. This mural, composed of hand-modified landscape postcards, offers a bracing commentary on the impact of the climate crisis on the American landscape, both real and imagined. Someday will be on view on Sept. 22. On Sept. 21 Opdyke, assisted by Museum staff, will install the mural, sharing a behind-the-scenes look at his process with attendees.
 
 
 
The Javits Center presents a work of art by Bronx-based artist Dario Mohr, who was commissioned to create his work, Solar Apex, to illustrate the importance of sustainability efforts within the events industry. Using materials donated after recent events at the Javits Center, as well as solar panels from the venue’s green roof, Dario has created a piece that underscores the need to repurpose, reuse and reimagine the world around us.The construction of the assemblage was inspired by the Javits Center’s partnership with Materials For the Arts (MFTA) and is on view Sept 21 – 22 for all guests of The Nest Summit Campus to see.
