Event Description:


Lehman College, CUNY will convene some of the nation’s leading environmental and climate scientists, educators and advocates for its inaugural Bronx Environmental Summit on March 22-23, 2021.

Addressing the world’s—and the Bronx’s--most pervasive environmental and public health problems will increasingly rely upon comprehensive and integrated strategies developed by experts across academic disciplines in collaboration with government, nonprofit organizations, and private stakeholder groups.

All climate change is local. Made possible by a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, Lehman College, CUNY’s first Bronx Environmental Summit is a no-cost, two-day, virtual conference that will engage local, regional and national leaders in climate and environmental science in a discussion about climate change, environmental justice and health equity and how the current and developing policies and initiatives aimed at addressing them may impact the Bronx, New York City and the world.

Developing future leaders. Uniquely, the Bronx Environmental Summit also aims to introduce student attendees to academic and career paths they may take to become scientists, advocates and policy makers equipped to solve the most pressing environmental problems in the 21st Century.
