How can the city reconceive waste as a resource and convert it to energy or compost? What are the barriers? Join us for a conversation about how we can rethink the concept of "waste" and its impact on New York's diverse neighborhoods and communities with Tatiana Schlossberg, contributing writer for Bloomberg View. 

Additional speakers to be announced; check back and join our email list for updates. 

This is the fourth program in our new series, New York's Future in a Changing Climate, which explores the challenges and opportunities presented in the Museum's Future City Lab, the interactive third gallery in the New York at Its Core exhibition.
