Over the past few years, a global movement towards sustainability and “green living” has influenced and changed the way many people, corporations and governments conduct daily functions. But what does it mean to live green and protect the environment around us? More importantly, what goes on around us each day to help foster this shift in behaviors to protect the natural resources and infrastructure around us?
Our NYC Green Living and Ecology tour takes students behind the scenes of different groups and organizations tasked with preserving the city’s natural oases and cultivating tomorrow’s food, water and resources. Our unique tours bring students to the front lines, connecting them with the people and tools actively conducting this important work.
Our Green Living & Ecology options include:
