Imagining 2020: A Critical Path to Resilient, Sustainable Communities

The Hudson Valley was a birthplace of the first environmental movement, linking land and water protection with economic prosperity.  The next environmental movement is all about people: how we live, work and develop our communities. This means re-envisioning cities, food and water systems, buildings and mobility so that people can lead more fulfilling lives and create economic opportunities as we actively restore our environment.
