In Situ: How to Make Living Sustainable

Creative Time and The New York Public Library are proud to present the final installment of their collaborative venture In Situ, a site-specific series of conversations pairing leading artists and intellectuals to address critical topics of our time.

“How to Make Living Sustainable” will focus on topics of climate change, environmental justice, and sustainability and will take place at Sims Municipal Recycling, a-state-of-the-art recycling plant on Sunset Park’s industrial waterfront. The talk will feature artist and activist Mel Chin, internationally renowned attorney and environmental and climate justice leader Elizabeth Yeampierre of the Brooklyn-based organization UPROSE, and President/CEO of GrowNYC Marcel Van Ooyen.

Frame the conversation with a behind the scenes peek into how recycling works in New York City. A limited number of Behind the Scenes tickets are available, and will offer guests a special guided tour of the state-of-the-art 11-acre recycling center on the Brooklyn waterfront, and reserved seating during the talk.

Other guests are invited to a self-guided tour of the facility before the talk.
