  • Time: 8:30am–1:00pm
  • Location: New York University School of Law | 40 Washington Square South – Vanderbilt Hall | New York, NY

———RECORDINGS WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON———

Green 2.0 hosted an event with the Institute for Policy Integrity at NYU School of Law, on the lack of diversity in leadership across the environmental movement. Our discussion will brought together environmental leaders from philanthropy, academia, government, and the nonprofit sector to discuss the movement’s pipeline problem and the policy implications of a monolithic movement. Environmental leaders explored the movement’s real challenges with diversity and confront the myth that people of color lack interest in the environment. Policy experts also examined regulatory and legislative challenges, and how greater diversity in strategy and message can help the movement educate and activate our broad base of support.
