Urban Sustainability In NYC

Queens College Business Forum will host “Sustainability and the City: A Panel Discussion on Urban Sustainability with a Focus on New York City and State” on Friday, March 23, from 8 am to 10 am. Guests include four experts on urban sustainability: Rob Craudereuff, CEO of Crauderueff Associates; Annel Hernandez, Resiliency Planner, NYC Environmental Justice Alliance; Jesse Scott, Customer Development Manager, New York Power Authority; and Tria Case, Esq. Director, Sustainable CUNY. Dr. Michael Wolfe, Dean of Social Science at Queens College, will be the moderator.

Launched in 2005, the Queens College Business Forum brings together the business community, local government, academia, and students to provide an opportunity for “town and gown” to interact. Influential leaders in a number of fields serve as keynote speakers at its breakfast and lunchtime lectures, touching on issues vital to the local business community.

“The Business Forum series is just one of the many vital partnerships Queens College maintains with the community,” says President Félix V. Matos Rodríguez. “We are particularly proud of our record in championing sustainability related initiatives, both in our campus operations and through faculty research. These include recent findings by microbiologist Gregory O’Mullan on increased levels of pharmaceuticals in the Hudson River and the resulting discussion on the best ways for the public to discard used medications.”

The forum is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. Public RSVP deadline is March 21. Email:
