Eco-Metropolis 2004
Emily Gertz, 12 Nov 04

The first ever Eco-Metropolis conference takes place in Manhattan this weekend, tonight through Sunday November 14 at the CUNY Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue at 34th Street. "[U]nbeknownst to most New Yorkers, our mega-city is home today to a thriving, highly creative landscape of eco-activists of all stripes..." reads the brochure, and this gathering, while modeled on the more macro-oriented Bioneers conference, has a regional focus.

I'll be checking out a few sessions over the weekend; say hi if you see me. My short list includes: Saturday's 10:30 am session on "Communicating Sustainability" with Green Map System founder Wendy Brawer; "Innovative Urban Eco-Tech" at 1:30 (energy turbines under the East River!); "The Greening of Cuisine: Sustainable Restauranteuring" on Sunday at 10:30, hosted by Hilary Baum; and "Eco-Medicine" on Sunday at 1:30 pm, with a panel including Cynthia Rosenzweig of NASA/Goddard's Climate Impacts Group, and Ajamu Sankofa, executive director of Physicians for Social Responsibility.
