23rd Annual Spring Environmental Lecture and Luncheon


23rd Annual Environmental Lecture and Luncheon Thumb

On April 24, 2013, the Museum hosted its 23rd Annual Spring Environmental Lecture and Luncheon “Islands in a Changing World: Resilience and Recovery.” The event featured a panel of experts discussing island resiliency, including New York and surrounding areas’ recovery from Hurricane Sandy, and the effects of climate change on oceanic islands.

Moderator Lynn Sherr, former “20/20” correspondent, was joined by panelists Stuart Gaffin, research scientist at the Center for Climate Systems Research at Columbia University; Philip Kramer, director of The Nature Conservancy’s Caribbean Program; and Seth W. Pinsky, president of the New York City Economic Development Corporation and leader of New York City’s Special Initiative for Rebuilding and Resiliency.

Listen to a portion of this year’s lecture, and join the Museum next April for the 24th Annual Spring Environmental Lecture and Luncheon.
