  • Creating the Next Conservation Movement — Or Do We Even Need One?

    Thursday, February 23, 2012 | 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Presented by Hot Topics in Green Science and Sustainability and The Nature Conservancy

      • Registration Closed

    "Conservation" and "environmentalism" are in danger of becoming our grandparents’ words. The environment ranks close to the bottom when Americans are polled about their top concerns, and the percentage of those who identify themselves as conservationists has slipped substantially in the last five years. How can we build a new U.S. conservation and environmental movement to meet the challenges of the new century...or is the desire to mainstream environmentalism just a symptom of the problem?
