The goal of WE ACT’s Sustainable Development Program Area is to develop and apply tools that empower the residents of Northern Manhattan and New York City to plan, design and achieve a healthy, sustainable and environmentally just community. WE ACT empowers residents to address irresponsible development proposals with community-based planning and development of sustainable, proactive initiatives. Our past successes in this Program Area continue to be manifested in our current projects.
Our current projects include the following:
Columbia University Expansion Project
One Region Promoting Prosperity Across Race
A 2009 report on sustainable development prepared by the Center for Social Inclusion (WE ACT Executive Director Peggy Shepard sits on the Advisory Board.)
