Hear about different sustainable subjects, like how community bicycle activism changed the whole city to a more safe and sustainable design with bike-lanes, auto-free plazas and greenways. Learn the history of the Green Guerrillas throwing seed bombs into abandoned lots that then flourished into lush community gardens. There are so many examples about how community-based activism became a part of sustainable NYC, from recycling and composting and to urban design.
