Tishman Environment and Design Center at The New School fosters the integration of bold design, policy, and social justice approaches to environmental
issues to advance just and sustainable outcomes in collaboration with communities.

is truly cross-disciplinary, incorporating and collaborative space that brings together stakeholders from a variety of disciplines, schools, and populations. It will be a communication bridge between the university's operational sustainability efforts
and the university community. We serve as a collaborative resource center and academic convener for environmental justice groups, community leaders, design, and climate experts to create discourse, dialogue, and action on today's most challenging
