Today, more than 400 resilient leaders from the around the globe are fanning out across NYC to learn more about our resilience work and share knowledge of their own successes.  From oyster bed restoration in Staten Island to the Dryline project in Manhattan, New York is at the forefront of innovative, resilient urban solutions. From climate change to population growth, immigration to governance, we hope that this window into New York’s resilience work will help cities around the world as they tackle the inevitable challenges they will face, as we also improve our work and learn from them. 
#100RCsummit #cities4climate #climateaction #ActOnClimate
As cities step onto front lines of the world’s most complex challenges, New York is honored to welcome the first-ever summit of the ENTIRE 100 Resilient Cities network this week. That's more than 400 resilience leaders from around the world. New York City is a proud member of this group of world-class cities dedicated to a resilient, sustainable future. We can’t wait to show off our own sweeping resilience efforts and learn from what others are doing.

Cleaner transportation is possible. We can shrink the environmental footprint of NYC transportation while at the same time improving access, and travel choices to make our city more livable for all.

By 2050, we envision a NYC where getting around town will be safer, cleaner, and more convenient. We’re creating safer bike lanes, speeding up bus service, buying more zero emissions vehicles, and more. All part of NYC’s efforts to make transit green!

Roof by roof, and tree by tree, we can work together to combat rising temps. Want to get involved? Visit NYC CoolRoofs to  register your roof for painting:

New Yorkers know climate change is real:  2016 was the hottest on record, and the New York City Panel on Climate Change projections show it’s only getting hotter. That’s why we’re doubling down on efforts to cool neighborhoods with more trees, white roofs, and buddy programs.
NYC Retrofit Accelerator, is a one-stop resource to help owners and operators of privately owned buildings reduce operating costs and increase the sustainability of their properties through energy and water upgrades. Sounds pretty awesome, right? Visit  https://retrofitaccelerator.cityofnewyork.us/ 
to learn more.
In 2050, we envision our buildings will be energy smart: upgraded to use less energy, rely more on renewable sources, and provide more comfortable temperatures for residents. They will be built to last & built to help. By 2025, building retrofits will create 1,000 jobs and reduce more than 1.5 mil tons of CO2.
Think of New York City, and the image that probably comes to mind includes buildings --
perhaps a sea of them. That is because New York is a dense city of buildings: There are almost a million of them in an area of little more than 300 square miles. So it makes sense that if New York City wants to tackle its environmental challenges, we will have to concentrate on our buildings.Today, we are carrying out this effort through a variety of retrofit programs and technologies with the goal of reducing buildings-based emissions 80% by 2050.
Jainey Bavishi & Kizzy Charles-Guzman dropped by @hot97 to discuss the great work we're doing to mitigate heat where it's needed most. @oldmanebro @ebrointheam @laurastylez @rosenbergradio
Powered down, but still powered up. #Daylighthour maybe coming to an end at 1pm, but together we can continue taking actions to create a more just, sustainable, resilient #OneNYC
