||In April of 2001, ICIS, along with the New
York Conservation Education Fund (the educational affiliate of the New York League of Conservation
Voters), and the Center for Excellence
in New York City Governance - joined forces to hold an "Environmental Candidate School."
During the half-day event, candidates running for city council and other city-wide offices learned
about environmental issues and how to incorporate them into their campaigns. The sessions addressed
the top environmental challenges facing New York City including wastewater, water supply, transportation,
air quality and public health. A distinguished array of guest speakers included former New York
City commissioners and specialists in academic and not for profit environmental and civic organizations.
