Educate : Professional Education : Environmental Candidate School

information exchange
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.
