The environment sustains us economically by providing energy and raw materials, and renews us by offering spaces to gather, play and reflect. As we look to the future, New Yorkers continue to grapple with finding a responsible balance between using and protecting our natural resources. Our newest toolkits help communities discuss environmental stewardship in the twenty-first century.
The Council is partnering with the Great Books Foundation to launch Serving: Standing Down, a new reading and discussion series for veterans and their families and caregivers. Thanks to a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, programs will start in Fall 2014.
