CCNY ASLA Student Chapter invites you to join us on Saturday, March 30th for the third annual interdisciplinary Rising Urbanists Conference. This year we will be (re)imagining the potential for urban forestry to address social and environmental justice issues within our cities. This conference is a groundbreaking forum for the next generation of urbanist thinkers to organize around long-term green infrastructure strategies rather than disciplinary hierarchies. An expansive approach to the urban forest could drive urban design by engaging and building from intersecting interests throughout our urban environment. Lunch, coffee and snacks included, and a rooftop social hour to follow!
