ROOTING FOR THE WORK
ON THE GROUND
Climate solutions can be romantic, but if created in silos or think-tanks not rooted in communities, they won’t solve anything.
Beginning in Red Hook this fall, we’re partnering with businesses, artists, teachers, thinkers and activists to actively imagine the future we want, and the work that needs to be done to do it.
In this particular and crucial time – ten years out from Sandy– Imagined Futures looks to galvanize, high-five and resource people and projects guiding us towards the future we owe to the earth… and each other.
There are people doing the work.
KNOW YOUR NEW YORKERS CHANGING THE CLIMATE
Change the Climate is an active philosophy. Climate is literal, social, and political– and if we're going to find long-lasting and meaningful responses to the changes upon us and ahead, we must address all of it at the same time.
Imagined Futures will focus on four areas of Climate: Housing and Development, Restoring our Relationship with land, System Change (policy), Youth Justice, and our Shoreline- We will focus on the people behind the work rather than just the work itself, diving into the past, present and future of our very real climate realities and community needs.
