As part of our Inwood Climate & Health Project, we are forming a Task Force of volunteers from Inwood who are interested in developing an action plan to address specific health issues driven or exacerbated by climate change in Inwood. At our community conversation on August 17, 2019, extreme heat was identified as the issue the community would like to address. And we held our kickoff meeting of the Inwood Climate & Health Task Force on August 27th, 2019, which included an educational workshop designed to strengthen each participant’s knowledge of these issues.
The next Task Force meeting will be at the P.S. 5 Ellen Lurie School (3703 Tenth Avenue) from 11 AM-2 PM on Saturday, September 7th, 2019. During this meeting we will create an action plan for addressing extreme heat and its health impacts in Inwood. If you are interested in attending this meeting, please RSVP. If you have any questions, please contact Sonal Jessel at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-961-1000 ext. 312.
