Forefront Initiatives ↓
Our fifth Forefront Fellowship explores how New York City’s commitment to clean energy will transform the built environment, advance economic democracy, and affirm environmental justice. In partnership with the Deputy Mayor for Strategic Policy Initiatives and the Mayor’s Office of M/WBE, Fellows will investigate how the market for building energy retrofits can create economic opportunity for MWBEs and employee-owned businesses. How will New York City reshape its built environment to achieve carbon neutrality? And how can this transition benefit communities historically shut out of the economy?
