Second Annual Sustainability and Future Cities Boot Camp

Climate change is on everyone’s minds today, and many municipalities have begun to implement new laws that affect the built environment in our nation’s cities. In 2019, the New York City Council passed the Climate Mobilization Act (CMA), an ambitious set of laws requiring property owners to comply with new carbon reduction standards for buildings—the largest emitters of carbon. The laws reflect New York City’s commitment to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. The CMA also includes legislation that provides resources for low-interest finance that may reduce the economic burden of building owners in making material changes to their properties to comply with the laws. But there are many property owners that either still do not understand the CMA or have not started making changes to their buildings that would comply with the CMA and thereby avoid major monetary penalties.

In response to these issues, Brooklyn Law School is offering its Second Annual Sustainability and Future Cities Boot Camp to provide participants answers on how to achieve some of the regulatory requirements that need to be satisfied.

The program will commence with a Keynote address from Camille Joseph Varlack ’03, Chief of Staff to Mayor Eric L. Adams, Office of the Mayor of New York City.
