Active Design for a Just + Equitable City
Communities around the world recognize New York City’s track record of high profile Active Design projects that spark neighborhood transformation and support healthy behaviors – from the High Line, to Brooklyn Bridge Park, to a pedestrianized Times Square. While these celebrated initiatives are certainly laudable, new conversations are emerging about how Active Design can be leveraged to address social equity – particularly in neighborhoods that grapple with the greatest health and economic disparities. --- This is a recording from the Active Design for a Just + Equitable City panel discussion from June 23, 2015. This event was hosted by the Center for Active Design, and featured Nilda Mesa (Director of the Mayor's Office of Sustainability), Eric Boorstyn (Associate Commissioner at the NYC Department of Design and Construction), Nupur Chaudhury (Senior Project Manager at Rebuild by Design), and Jon Denham (Co-President at Denham Wolf).
