“Green Gotham,” a 30-minute interview show hosted by yours truly debuts today at 12:30 pm on Manhattan Neighborhood Network (MNN). This new show introduces viewers to New York City’s exciting and vibrant green happenings and the visionary players making them possible.
“Green Gotham’s” (or GG as we call it at MNN) 8 fast-paced episodes will demonstrate that New Yorkers are taking on climate change and other environmental problems with creativity and passion. Today’s episode features Michelle Andry, an administrator with the Urban Assembly School For Green Careers (UAGC), a specialty public high school on the Upper West Side which prepares students for careers in Green Building and Green Spaces (i.e. agriculture, horticulture, etc.). Joining Ms. Andry is one of UAGC’s recent graduates and leading lights, Kendy Francois.
Future episodes will focus on:
- The downtown, clean-tech start-up scene
- A company that developed a streetlight powered by solar and wind.
- Composting, NYC apartment-style
- And more!
We are working on getting a guest from the intersection of Green and Sports–which will thus make Green Gotham relevant to GreenSportsBlog readers. But remember, this is a SHAMELESS PLUG so hopefully it’s ok to go off-topic today.
Finally, some FAQs:
